No Footprint House Wood / NFHW

A modular toolbox for sustainable construction

In 2018, we developed the No Footprint House (NFH) as a modular component system for sustainable construction. The first residential prototype was built in Costa Rica, it was published worldwide and received 23 international awards for architecture, construction, innovation and sustainability. Among those was the Green Product Award 2020. Since the making of the prototype, we have worked on building iterations of the original scheme, customizing new homes on the base of its modular component system, as well as developing new materials and building components, such as the NFH in Wood (NFHW).
