Low-energy House

House M

The distinctive feature of the property lies in its north-facing slope, which has to be negotiated over two stores to reach the almost flat garden level. This gives rise to the leitmotiv of a “house winding up the slope”, with a quarry- facade which is corresponding to the ultra thin Frames of the facade.

FINCUBE House

Nnatural high-tech is the concept of this new modular, sustainable & transportable low-energy house. Designed by Werner Aisslinger and developed with a South Tyrolian team, the FINCUBE was created 1200m above sea level near Bozen in Northern Italy, with a brilliant view of the famous Dolomite mountains. The hideaway-innature nomadic housing concept is since recently exhibited as a prototype in Ritten, above Bozen. 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 m that are easily renatured after the FINCUBE is moved to another location.
