‘pallet house’ by schnetzer andreas claus and pils gregor
‘pallet house‘ was designed by schnetzer andreas claus and pils gregor, students
from the university of vienna. made out of reused pallets it is modular, energy efficient
and affordable making it good for low income housing.
back in 2008 they won the gaudi european student competition, for their design, which
was seeking designs for minimal houses of leisure for the XXI century on sustainable
architecture. since then they have exhibited in numerous cities in europe including venice,
vienna, linz and grenoble.

a low cost unit that costs 11USD per sq foot together with the organisation ithuba skills collage.
