When it comes to sustainability, designers seek to create new models for everything, be they light bulbs, cars or even houses. French architectural firm Multipod Studio came up with an interesting new invention, the Pop-up House.
The new sustainable house prototype is lightweight and recyclable. Moreover, thanks to the materials used to build it, the house will be an inexpensive purchase. Assembling it cannot be easier. With only an electric screwdriver, the Pop-up House can be ready in only four days.
Multipod Studio’s Pop-up House measures 150 sq m (1,614 sq ft). Once you step inside the house, you will notice a large open area that combines the kitchen, dining and living room areas. Moreover, the house is pretty spacious, boasting two bathrooms, a master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, an office, and even a terrace.
The Pop-up House is made of a spruce wood frame, laminate wooden floor and expanded polystyrene insulation blocks. It can be assembled with ease even by those who have no experience in constructions. The designers said the house is just one giant Lego.
Thanks to its insulation and airtight thermal envelope, the house does not need any form of heating if it is assembled in relatively warm areas. Considering the fact that the house meets the Passivhaus energy standard, we can assume it will be easy to heat even in chilly areas.
For now, the house is still in the prototype stage. Preliminary pricing is estimated somewhere at €30,000 (roughly US$41,000). This includes labor, but does not include finishing touches such as waterproofing, electricity, and plumbing. The designers claim that the Pop-up House is fire and earthquake-resistant. Moreover, it has excellent sustainability and durability.
When you no longer need the house, you can simply disassemble it. Would you move in such a house?
