This Wooden Bricks Can Be Used to Assemble a Home Without Nails or Screws
The construction of a house has never looked so simple and fun. French startup Catharhome has developed an ecological and economical wooden brick named Brikawood.
Situated in the Pyrenees, Catharhome has specialised in innovative products for wood construction for 30 years. Brikawood are wooden bricks which can be built like a Lego, without glue neither nails nor screws. This is the idea of engineer Alain Romero and it has taken him three years of research to develop it with the help of Patricia Dutreux. They have invested 330 000 Euros in this project.
The principle with these bricks is to produce timber frame walls for any type of architecture and thus enter the chain of sustainable development. They have been designed so as to limit the handling and the energy consumption.
