Four days and a wireless screwdriver are all you need to build your very own Pop-Up House, according to French design and architecture firm Multipod Studio.

Multipod developed the Pop-Up House concept as an alternative to traditional passive construction techniques.

The entire structure of the house (floors, walls, ceiling) can be built using lightweight and recyclable materials for quick installation.

Insulating blocks with wooden panels are assembled to deliver affordable thermal insulation, meaning no additional heating is necessary.

The exterior fa├žade is finished with timber rain screens, the volume of which can be adapted to suit different architectural styles.

The first prototype of the Pop-Up House has been built in the pine valleys of the South of France to as a demonstration of the new passive construction model.
