Origami cabin – Valle Verzasca, Switzerland

Heima was engaged by a local stakeholder to design and develop 5 tailor-made cabins in the southern part of Switzerland, Ticino.


Inspired by Japanese paper sculptures, our versatile and easily integrated in the landscape model Origami covers a total surface of 30 m2.

It comes with a proprietary Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that showcases the whole value chain of the production, ensuring the transparency of our sustainability commitments.

Furthermore, the modules have a light footprint, guaranteeing the reversibility of the land if necessary.

Project Status

The project is currently under permitting phase. Updates will follow soon.
