Multipod Studios reveals prototype ‘pop-up’ Passivhaus

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + PROJECT DATA] Marseille-based Multipod Studios has constructed a 150m2 Passivhaus which can be assembled ‘like Lego’

The three-bedroom ‘Pop-Up House’ is made from EPS insulation blocks separated by wooden boards.

The house took four people four days to construct using just a wireless screwdriver.

The architects’ view

‘The Pop-Up House is flexible and can be adapted to modern or classic architectures. It is also suitable for extensions, elevations and prefabricated construction.

‘Thanks to its simplicity and rapid assembly, the Pop-Up House is particularly suited to temporary structures or emergency constructions following natural disasters.’
