다음은 종이로 만든 집에관한 정보입니다.
이전 아이티(Haiti)나 필리핀등을 다니면서, 정상적인 집이 인간에게 얼마나 중요한지 느낀점이 있었기에 이런 정보는 필히 보관하고픈 마음입니다.
※신소재에서도 종이가 철에비해 강도나 파손률, 무게등에서 압도적이라고합니다. 심지어는 포항제철에서조차 신소재 개발에 열을 올린다고하더군요.

곰곰히 생각하니 위에 언급한 극빈국가만의 관심사가 아니겠군요..추위와 더위를 피하는 집이라는 것은..


지진에도 끄떡없는 '종이로 만든 집', 가격은 700만원

주방 시설, 샤워를 할 수 있는 화장실, 소형 테라스 등이 갖춰져 있고, 지진에도 끄덕 없는 내진 기능까지 있는 '종이로 만든 집'이 개발되었다.

17일 더 타임스, BBC 등 외신이 보도한 바에 따르면, 아프리카 등 제 3세계의 가난한 사람들을 위해 만들어진 '종이 주택'은 스위스 건축 회사 '더 월 AG'가 개발했다.

종이 집의 넓이는 36.2 평방제곱미터(약 11평)로, 8명이 거주할 수 있다. 이 집의 재료는 재활용 종이로 만든 특수 종이 패널인데, 단열, 방수 기능을 물론 내진 기능까지 갖추고 있다는 것이 개발 회사 측의 설명이다. '종이로 만든 집'이지만 바람이 불면 날아갈 허술한 집은 아니라는 이야기다.

종이 주택의 가격은 5,000달러(약 680만원)로, 성능에 비해 가격이 저렴하고 건설 또한 쉽다고 언론은 전했다. 집 전체의 무게는 소형 자동차와 비슷한 800kg에 불과하다. 기초 부위를 제외한 순수한 주택의 무게는 400kg이다.

개발 회사 측은 저렴하고 건설이 쉬우며 친환경적인 '종이 주택'이 도시 빈민, 난민 등 가난한 사람들의 거주지로 사용될 수 있을 것으로 내다봤다. 나이지리아, 앙골라등의 나라에서 이미 제작 주문을 받았다고 회사 측은 밝혔다.

The Wall paper house offers cheap dry home for poor and displaced

The property market is in the doldrums, mortgages are elusive but there is still some hope for the first-time buyer: the paper house.

Retailing for about $5,000 (£3,375), the house is supposed to brighten up Third World shantytowns and provide quick shelter for long-term refugees. The Universal World House can be used almost anywhere: light, easily assembled, environmentally friendly, earthquake-proof and, crucially in the age of recession, a bit of a bargain.

Gerd Niemoeller, its inventor, says that the 36sq m paper house weighs barely 800kg (1,763lb) — lighter than a VW Golf. “Without the foundation block, the whole house actually weighs in at about 400kg,” says the design engineer. It will not, however, simply blow away. The basic material is resin-soaked cellulose recovered from recycled cardboard and newspapers.

Add heat and pressure and the paper becomes extremely stable. The interior of the prefabricated building panels resemble honeycombs; an air vacuum fills each of the units. The result: a strong and stable exterior wall, well insulated. A similar construction technique is used in aircraft and high-speed yachts.

“But they are working with aluminium and other alloys, which is expensive, time consuming, energy intensive,” said Mr Niemoeller, who has patented the invention under the name of his Swiss-based company The Wall AG. “That’s not suitable for the Third World.” The prime purpose is to create intelligent housing settlements almost instantly for the displaced and the urban poor.

“People don’t want to flee their countries, they’ve been driven to leave their homes out of the need to survive,” said the 58-year-old engineer. “The number of migrants, refugees living in improvised housing, is going to grow with climate change, and we offer an alternative.” An alternative, that is, to the corrugated-iron sheds and lean-tos so often seen in the slums of the developing world.

The house has eight built-in single and double beds and a veranda with a sealed-off area housing a shower and a lavatory. It has been designed together with the German development aid agency GTZ, and with the architect Dirk Donath, from the Bauhaus University in Weimar.

Apart from the sleeping area, there are shelves, a table and benches. “It has been designed so that a family can slaughter an animal on the veranda, wash it in the shower and hang it, along with fish, on an integrated washing line.” The whole wall of the kitchen can be tipped open to let air in and to blur the distinction between inside and outside.

First inquiries have come from the Delta State oil developers in Nigeria, and from Angola. More than 2,000 houses have been ordered by another Nigerian company. Development aid agencies are considering whether the houses could be used to accommodate those fleeing from the cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe. South America, too, is interested.

The aim is to build the machines in northern Germany, near Kiel, and then send them, along with the raw materials, to the target country. The houses are then put together on the spot, creating local jobs and reducing transport costs.

But there is no reason why the paper houses should not be used in Europe.

The panels are rain resistant — and it is not compulsory to butcher a goat on the veranda.


Please let us in the U.S.A. know if they will be available here in the near future. It would be a great little cabin in the woods. Please publish more information for us.

I am interested and will you ship this item in the US.

Perhaps they should not paint these houses. That way, people could read their home as well as live in it. Naturally, they would want to be certain they used only "family friendly" reading material for construction (except in the bathroom of course).

William, Isle of Zirkington, NZ

Again, how do I buy one?

derek smith, Denton, Tx, US

Doe anyone have any idea on the fire resistance of the structure?

Tom, Savannah, USA

I wouldn't mind having one myself. In these tough economic times any of us might just lose our "real" homes and having this as an alternative would be great. I am fortunate that I have a little piece of land in E. Texas where I could put it if, God Forbid, I lost my home for any reason. Great idea!

Kris, Dallas, USA

Can this paper house be available in US? How can I buy it?

Joe, san jose, usa

These houses are a great idea as they could build thousands of them in very short order for emergency shelters after a major natural disaster. More importantly, these houses are easily recycled to build new ones after their original use are finished.

Raymond, Sacramento, California , USA

Fascinating! 

Its high time that the world starts looking 'Seriously' at these alternate & affordable Housing concepts. 

If this trend catches on then their would be economies of scale , cutting the prices even more. 

I am tired of the high prices of realty and the speculations in the sector.

Rahul Sengupta, Kolkata, India

with the need for land, though? you can't just plop these guys down anywhere, i think that you're forgetting about the very important issue of land, you need to have a place to put it, it needs a foundation, especially in northern us and canada,

justin, troy, ny, usa

Apartment dwellers in Canada and the U.S. would jump at these $5000 houses, enlarge them and live like kings!

San Ying, Montreal, canada

i was wondering how these houses would fair in a hot, humid, hurricane prone environment? There are a lot of people around here who could use a house, still. Maybe, at $5,ooo.oo you could just buy a new one after each hurricane. or maybe they could be moved north and then back fairly easily. hmmm.

carolyn, arnaudville, la , us

We also can put these Bauhaus designed houses to good use in Canada.

Peter , Ottawa, Canada

We need those in the US!

The Wall paper house 종이로만든 집  (5) 2009.01.21

    2009년 잘 시작하셨는지요,
    오랜만에 찾아뵙습니다^^;; 도쿄와 오오사카라서 자주 못 뵙는데, 블로그를 통해서라도 자주 연락을 드려야 되는데 그러지도 못하는군요.
    이런 시설이라면 지진 피해를 입은 사람들에게도 저렴하게 제공이 가능할 것 같군요, 종이로 이정도까지 만들어 내다니 아무튼 인간은 대단한 존재입니다^^

      오픈검색님 새해복많이 받으십시요..^^

      종이하우스에대해서는 좋은 지적이십니다. 일본도 재난에 관한 대비가 잘되어있는 나라기때문에, 이런 컨셉의 제품은 수입을 해볼까도 생각합니다.

    종이집이 700만원이라는 사실. 그런데 튼튼하다는 사실에 또 놀랍니다.

    설 연휴 잘 보내시고 복 많이 받으세요.

      도아님도 세해복많이 받으세요..
      기회가된다면 도아님 만나러 가고싶네요..^^
