WALLET© - WELSH PALLET HOUSING- is an innovative housing frame. It constitutes an ecological response by reusing timber-shipping boards applied to compact dwellings. It can be easily assembled or disassembled. Neither cranes nor scaffolds are used to connect load-bearing walls with floors and roofs. It rests lightly on the land. There are two types: Cubic and Triangular (A-frame) solutions. The modules are assembled and embraced mainly by boards, tensile components or metal A-FRAME 4.80m x 8.00m connectors. These components are available in the shipping and packaging manufacturing. The frameworks have climatically been tested with passive techniques such as orientation, building shape, and colours, available local materials, and shading devices. They have similar base modulation: 80cms x 120cm. Both models have been designed to provide alternatives for those who have low-income or not enough capital to enter to the standard housing market. The WALLET© has expandable and contractible spaces and you can aggregate several types sustainable building materials. In terms of space distribution, the houses have a central kitchen/bath core with sleeping compartments and an expandable social area. In addition, multiple units can be connected to create a larger space for a family.
