Igloo-inspired prefab houses from the Faroe Islands | Kvivik Igloo

Danish engineer Ole Vanggard and Faroese architect Kári Thomsen worked together to design sustainable and self-sustaining cabins: these tiny houses built from heptagonal units echo the past but are a beacon to the future.

The asphalt panels lining the cottages can sprout both moss and grass, lending a hobbit-like charm to these fun-sized homes, while also creating a nesting place for animals, thus supporting the idea of sustainability.

The igloos are built using natural materials and passive house construction practices, while the arrangement of their windows and the tall interior height ensure that the cottages are always brightly lit. Placed on a sturdy concrete foundation, these prefabricated cabins can withstand harsh weather conditions, too.
