Wikkelhouse is a unique modular concept. Individual standard segments can be simply interlinked with hidden connections to form a (holiday) home or office. Fiction Factory, a creative and innovative company in Amsterdam, can make a Wikkelhouse in any desired style.
The base of Wikkelhouse is virgin fiber cardboard, which is made from Scandinavian trees. This top-quality cardboard is wrapped around a unique patented house-shaped mould, while environmentally friendly glue is added. This results in a robust sandwich structure with optimal insulation qualities and structural strength. After wrapping the cardboard each segment is covered with a waterproof but breathable foil. This foil makes sure the cardboard doesn’t get drenched during rain while any moisture in the cardboard can always go out. The outside panelling of Wikkelhouse is made of stained pine wood and protects the foil against UV/Sunlight.
Wikkelhouse meets temporary and permanent accommodation standards. It is three times more sustainable than traditional construction with an estimated lifespan of at least 50 years. Recyclable materials and the possibility of reusing modules, guarantees its sustainability. Assembled in one day, Wikkelhouse can be ﬁtted with a glass or closed end façade. The house can be expanded with a module containing toilet, bathroom and kitchen facilities. It’s also possible to move the house or extend it with one or more modules. In general, due to its light-weight construction, no foundation is needed. Technical calculations show that wind does not form a risk. This unique and contemporary design offers you a very special, creative living space.
