ikkelhouse is what you get when an everyday material finds a groundbreaking purpose. Using cardboard as its main building material, it is a cutting-edge sustainable house with a beautiful design and exceptional constructive strength. Four years of research have led to pioneering construction technology. The 24 layers of top-quality cardboard are wrapped around a rotating house-shaped mould and bonded together with eco-friendly glue. The result is a robust sandwich structure with optimal insulation qualities.
Wikkelen is Dutch for wrapping. A one-of-a-kind holiday home, guest house, or office space – Wikkelhouse can be whatever you want it to be. With its friendly design and premium finishings, it brings comfort in many ways. Even its acoustics are unequaled. It is made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be connected and disconnected. The modular setup makes the house highly flexible, with added extra segments for extra meters where needed. You can even create your own floorplan and change it later with ease.
Would you like a kitchen in your Wikkelhouse? A bathroom? A shower? Include our smart Home-segment to your Wikkelhouse layout and you’re set for life. Each Wikkelhouse is tailor-made by our specialized craftsmen. Extra windows, different finishings, or your own color scheme is possible by connecting with the Wikkelhouse team to bring your ideas to life. Since it is sustainably produced and made of materials that have minimal impact on the environment, it is 3x more eco-friendly than traditional housing. Moreover, the segments can be reused over and over again and are 100% recyclable.
Your Wikkelhouse is built in their workshop in Amsterdam. When ready, the segments are transported to the location of your choice and connected on the spot. It just takes a day to place your Wikkelhouse.
Each Wikkelhouse is finished with waterproof but breathable foil and wood paneling to protect it from all weather conditions. Wikkelhouse is here to last you a lifetime. With a weight of only 500 kilos per segment, Wikkelhouse doesn’t need a foundation and can be placed anywhere you want your Wikkelhouse to be. On the beachside, in your backyard or even on a rooftop.
