Kokoon Modular Living Unit


'Kokoon' is a design and construction project built to address the current housing situation in Europe where a shortage of short-term housing affects many residents from asylum seekers to students and families whose apartments undergo renovation. The project is a pre-fabricated and transportable module for living that can be stacked or spread into a larger configurations for a period of a few weeks or months, The units can then be moved to another location when necessary. The scale and flexibility of the project allows for a large range of configurations to fit various urban and sub-urban contexts. In each case, the units are finished inside with integrated lighting and furniture with only stacking and connection work done on site. To test and demonstrate the possibilities of this modular system, three prototype modules were built at full scale and stacked together to be put on public display.

Key benefit

Rapid assembly, carefully design interior spaces.

Material list

125x45mm Kerto studs and 45x80mm mm Kerto panels (visible inside)

125mm cellulose fiber (blown in)

22x125mm and 22x60mm Sawn Pine (painted red)

Ecological values



  • Economical span (mm)
  • Thickness (mm)
  • Airbourne sound reduction factor (dB)
  • Impact sound transmission (dB)
  • Resistance to fire class
  • Thermal properties



  • Interesting idea to showcase a multi-storey module that is made from small amount of different elements but still allowing variation for the floor plans. LVL panels allow fast module production and offer the required load-bearing capacities. Wooden structures can be part of a sustainable construction and LVL can offer material efficiency.
