Recycled PET house
Modular house made of recycled PET plastic parts produced by standard industrial extrusion and assembled like Legos.
Our house consists of a system of 5 parts made of recycled PET that assemble into standardized pillars to form cubic cells that easily stack together to form larger house surfaces.The parts geometries have been designed for producibility in an extrusion process and standardized assembly. Numerical analyses performed on a single cell and two stacked single cells have proven that the recycled PET house structure can withstand load cases defined by SIA and ISO norms and the common service temperature range in civil engineering (-40°C to 60°C).
