Modular and Sustainable Home Design 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.
