Fincube, a Modular and Sustainable Home in Italy

From German company Studio Aisslinger comes “Fincube”, an interesting and sustainable architecture project. The house was built at an altitude of 1200 meters near Bozen, Italy. Its design plan implies a low energy consumption with a minimal CO2 footprint. Fincube houses an area of 47 sq m, which is similar to the living space of a small apartment. Its interior design is minimal, yet it has everything city life has to offer. The coolest part is that the home can be dismantled and moved to a different site. Sure, this is not the easiest process, but it can be done. If you are interested in the materials used to build this unusual home, the architects used a combination of larch and stone-pine. I don’t know about you, but I would surely like to pack it up and hit the mountains with it.-via Designboom

  2. [...] This house features anything a modern house has in its 47-sq meters size. This house is built at an altitude of 1200 meters with mesmerizing views near Bozen, Italy by Germany architects Studio Aisslinger. And if you wonder whether this house is a prefab or not due to its unique shape, the answer is this is not a prefab house, but this house can be dismantled and moved to a different site even though that’s not an easy job. The materials used for the house are larch and stone-pine. Apart from its solar PV on the roof, the design seems like a great mountain cabin design. I mean, this compact cubical house is clad with glass. This is more than just amazing.! The modern exterior is a real “Finecube.” Via Freshome [...]
