Flatpack Ready-to-Assemble House

Gregg Fleishman’s Flatpack House (TreeHugger)

Disaster House by Gregg Fleishmann
Ikea has proven that people love prefab flatpack furniture – for the convenience, ease of shipping and assembly, design, simplicity and price. Now you can have that same flatpack experience – but with a house. Architect and designer Gregg Fleishman from southern California has designed a flatpack Disaster House and Shelter System made of router-cut European sustainable birch plywood pieces that fit together like a 3D puzzle, requiring no nails, screws or glue. Although it needs some sort of rain cover, it’s still a very cool concept and design. It’s available through Swarm Studios for US$22,000 + tax including assembly.

This 14′ square house could provide the shelter needed for different occasions – for either emergency or fun reasons. Check out his “Playgoda”, a fun and cool option for keeping the kids busy in the backyard. No need to work with countless nails and screws to put the swingset/jungle gym together.

freakin awesome.

That is a very cool smart idea. I’m hooked on portability with so many things in life, and i think the focus on making smething that can be stuck together quickly and easily helps promote super clean architecture, as you know you can’t glaze over a design flaw with something on the outside. Plus this just has inspiration written all over it, this is an ideas hut.

An ideas hut, nice one Tim! Perhaps this is the new office space of the future. You could set one of these up in a beach carpark, or on the side of a mountain for a day and have it gone before the local authorities had a go at you. Or you could put it on the back of a trailer and get your team to turn up to work there. Now that’s how I’d like to work.
