Happycheap House by Tommy Carlsson
- Anke Nunheim
The project ‘Happycheap House’ by swedish architect Tommy Carlsson is a prototype for an affordable and space-efficient home near Stockholm. It is clad in corrugated iron and resembles a cube with some of its corners cut off. The design of the 110-square-metre house aims to optimise internal space, with a series of angled surfaces defining different living areas. The house was built using a prefabricated modular frame of laminated plywood, reducing the total cost of the project to 170,000 euros. Carlsson states ‘The concept is both a vision of a better world in the small format, how we live in the future and what we need around us’.
If you are interested, the first house is a prototype and now a series of houses can be ordered on the company’s website.
