‘fincube’ by studio aisslinger
german firm studio aisslinger have created ‘fincube’ a concept for a new modular,
sustainable and transportable low energy house. developed together with a south
tyrolian team the ‘fincube’ was created 1200m above sea level near bozen in northern
made entirely of local wood, the building provides 47 sqm of living space with a minimal
CO2 footprint. it is a materialized vision of a small housing unit with a long lifecycle.
it can easily be dismantled and rebuilt on a new site, and even more important for nature
hideaways: it requires minimum soil sealing – just 2 meters.
the design is minimal, material-orientated, and in close touch with nature – the wooden
space with a 360-degree triple glazing is furnished with a second facade layer, producing
shade and giving the building a unique overall mushroom-like monoshape. the horizontal
ledges give privacy to the ‘fincube’ and embed the building into forests, meadows, mountain
sides or any nature resorts.
the supporting structure is made of local larch and the interior is a combination of larch
and stone-pine. the 3m-high space is organized in a helical structure: the entrance area blends
into a generous open kitchen with an adjacent sofa living space, around the corner one enters
the bedroom and further down is the spacious bathroom.
