German design firm Studio Aisslinger has unveiled the Fincube, a concept sustainable and transportable low-energy house.

With minimal carbon footprint, the living unit can also be easily dismantled and reassembled on a new site. Moreover, the dwelling requires minimum soil sealing of just 2 meters. The material-oriented Fincube has been designed to be in close touch with nature. The wooden space with a 360-degree triple glazing is furnished with a second layer façade that provides shade and gives the built its unique look.

The roof of the Fincube is equipped with photovoltaic panels that generate renewable energy for the dwelling. The supporting structure is also made from local materials and the interior features a combination of larch and stone-pine. The entrance blends into an open kitchen with an adjacent sofa living space.
