The cork house

This cork house dwelling arrangement is the work of a collaboration between Matthew Barnett Howland, Dido Milne, and Oliver Wilton.

The silhouettes of the home boast a very interesting aesthetic that relies on versatile and recyclable materials. The mission, however, shines brighter here more than anything. The trio of designers developed the concept of the cork house in a bid to advocate for sustainability. The project offers a “response to the architecture industry’s impact on biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, and reliance on single-use materials.”

The structure is comprised out of ethically sourced cork blocks and the designers support the silhouette with timber inserts. When determining the shape of the cork houses, Howland, Milne, and Wilton focused on facilitating a highly adaptable structure that can be “easily dismantled, reused or recycled.”
