Wikkelhouse is what you get when an everyday material finds a groundbreaking purpose. Using cardboard as its main building material, Wikkelhouse is a cutting-edge sustainable house with a beautiful design and exceptional constructive strength.
Four years of research has led to a pioneering construction technology. The 24 layers of top-quality cardboard are wrapped around a rotating house-shaped mould and bonded together with eco-friendly glue. The result is a robust sandwich structure with optimal insulation qualities. Wikkelen is Dutch for wrapping.
A house for you.
A one-of-a-kind holiday home, guest house or office space – Wikkelhouse can be whatever you want it to be. With its friendly design and premium finishings, Wikkelhouse brings comfort in many ways. Even its acoustics are unequalled.
Wikkelhouse is made up of 1.2 meter deep segments that can easily be connected and disconnected. The modular setup makes the house highly flexible. Add extra segments for extra meters. Create your own floorplan. Change it later. Truly anything goes.
Would you like a kitchen in your Wikkelhouse? A bathroom? A shower? Include our smart Home-segment to your Wikkelhouse layout and you’re set for life.
Each Wikkelhouse is tailor-made by our specialized craftsmen. Extra windows, different finishings or your own color scheme – tell us your ideas and make Wikkelhouse even more to your liking.
Since Wikkelhouse is sustainably produced and made of materials that have minimal impact on the environment, it is 3x more eco-friendly than traditional housing. Moreover, the segments can be reused over and over again and are 100% recyclable.
Placed in a day.
Your Wikkelhouse is built in our workshop in Amsterdam. When ready, the segments are transported to the location of your choice and connected on the spot. It just takes a day to place your Wikkelhouse.
Each Wikkelhouse is finished with waterproof but breathable foil and wood panelling to protect it from all weather conditions. Wikkelhouse is here to last you a lifetime.
With a weight of only 500 kilos per segment, Wikkelhouse doesn’t need a foundation and can be placed anywhere you want your Wikkelhouse to be. On the beachside, in your backyard or even on a rooftop. Looking for a change of scenery? Just move the house to a different spot.

How much does a Wikkelhouse cost?

VAT (based on 3 segments and excluding transport and placement). However, most houses are sold in between EUR 50.000,- and 85.000,- excl. VAT, transport and placement.
Can I cook a good meal in my Wikkelhouse? Take a shower? Go to the bathroom?
Yes, yes and yes. Simply add a smart ‘Home’-segment to your Wikkelhouse design. This segment holds all domestic installations and offers you a kitchen, shower and bathroom.
What is the size of a Wikkelhouse?
You can make your Wikkelhouse as big as you want, but one segment is 5 m2 (length: 4,5 meters / width: 1,2 meters / height: 3,5 meters).
Is Wikkelhouse available worldwide?
Unfortunately not. We deliver Wikkelhouse in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, UK and Scandinavia. In 2020 Chile will follow and we plan to keep it that way throughout 2021. Patience is a virtue.
We are incredibly grateful for the big demand for Wikkelhouse. At this moment we can deliver your Wikkelhouse approximatly 8 months after you have ordered it. Sometimes you can be lucky if we have one or two in stock!
How can I participate in Wikkelhouse?
You can not. We handle all sales, marketing and business activities from our office in Amsterdam. We are a young company that believes in controlled business development with a personal touch. This is our way of ensuring quality and durability of the Wikkelhouses we develop and deliver.
