The perfect balancing act between luxury and "au naturel": in the "Kabaischen" of the Minett Trail in Bergem, one of eleven hiking huts along the regional hiking trail, the focus is on the environment and sustainability.
Hikers can spend a night in sustainable lodgings, in this small, original, environmentally friendly construction behind the ‘BeimNëssert’ Cultural Centre in Bergem.
The small hut is made of recycled cardboard. The walls are made of 24 layers of cardboard that were moulded around a huge machine, not dislike the winding of a coil, hence its name, the ‘Wikkelhouse’, meaning ‘wrap house’ in Dutch.
Wikkelhouses consist of individual modules that can be assembled in flexible, creative ways, just like building blocks.
The construction being very light, no foundation was needed. It was produced in the Netherlands and built in a single day.
The architects of Kaell Architecte were responsible for this project.
