interSCALA presents the iHouse
Sustainable and energy efficient, pre-fabricated, modular housing system
Since 1964, we have been working with wood, creating products for the home. Today we use our experience to craft this beautiful object, formed from wood and glass - 8000kg of superior workmanship and design.
A structural steel frame supports 34m2 of living space, with a separate bathroom and balcony. It gives a new definition to the word “turnkey”.
All of the fixtures and fittings are included, from the bed sheets to the toilet brush.
The specifications are top of the line, from the kitchen to the bedroom furniture. It can be used either as a permanent house or a mobile home.
It is a stunning, minimal, modern object of desire.
It is the iHouse.
For those who might wonder “why iHouse”, the answer is:
iHouse is a wooden getaway, an ecological transportable home, with low environmental impact and carbon foot print, focusing on quality, not quantity, completely self-sufficient, offering many of the modern conveniences that consumers expect.
Within a well organised 34m2, there is everything one needs to live comfortably and it can be further enhanced through orientation, glazing and shading options to take full advantage of the natural assets of each site.
Pre-fabrication generates less waste allowing more opportunities for greener construction methods and technologies. The green credentials of the iHouse are second to none: a solid wood construction, no artificial wood and solvent adhesives, LED lighting throughout and pellet stove heating.
In the case that it is used as a mobile home, disconnected from mains utilities, rainwater collection, photovoltaics, black and grey water storage and hot water from solar water heating are included.
