The structure is made from 3600 pre-fabricated elements, which interlock easily to create a simple construction method. It is easily disassembled and then can be transported on a truck.


The structural system is made from recycled plywood elements, which are extremely useful for modular construction. The sustainable product has a low carbon footprint.


The stepped form of the structure means that the structure itself can form the bookcases, as well as seating for users. Having three distinct functions for the building elements means less material can be used.
