With many urban areas becoming overcrowded, and housing becoming ever more expensive, we have seen a number of solutions aimed at developing innovative urban planning. These include a roof-top micro-house based around an air duct and a modular building that assembles itself. Now a team at Casagrande Laboratory, a Finnish architecture and innovation firm, has designed a micro-house that can be built in one night and has a foot-print the size of just one car parking place – 2.5 by 5 meters. The house, dubbed Tikku (meaning ‘stick’ in Finnish) is assembled out of cross-laminated timber (CLT), which is five times lighter that reinforced concrete. With a thickness of 20cm, the CLT will also provide enough insulation on its own for even the cold Finnish winters.
