Finch Buildings produces contemporary housing units that are not only movable and customisable, but also sustainable to make. The company’s goal with this project is to offer an answer to the pressing question of the future of housing.
The mindfull use of sustainable cross laminated timber for both structure and finish makes clear that the company keeps ethics in mind without compromising on aesthetics. Their policy is to plant a new tree for every deforested one. By also using timber on the interior, the space has an open and natural feel as well as humidity controll. In the building process fossil energy sources are banned and appliances are powered electrically. Building waste was also taken into account as only 5% of the dwelling cannot be recycled. The well thought out approach makes Finch Buildings a small company with a big commitment to positive change and the goal to make sustainability mainstream.
