‘Fincube’ by Studio Aisslinger (DE)

'Fincube' by Studio Aisslinger

With his ‘LoftCube’ the Berlin based interior architect and designer Werner Aisslinger introduced an architectural prefabricated add-on for urban spaces. His new ‘Fincube’ builds the equivalent “hideaway-innature” solitaire. Developed with a South Tyrolian team, the ‘Fincube’ was created 1200m above sea level near Bozen in Northern Italy.

Sustainable nomadic house
“Made entirely of local wood, the building provides 47 sqm of living space with a minimal CO2 footprint: local suppliers and local crafts using local long-lasting and recyclable materials manufactured with the precision and care of tyrolese handwork. The Fincube 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 sqm that are easily renatured after the Fincube is moved to another location.”

Long-lasting design
“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 combination of long-lasting design and the option of changing its location after a while make the Fincube a flexible home or hideaway and a lifetime companion.”
