Our Favourites: Three projects made of cork

With their extraordinary material they attract everyone’s attention: The roofs of the residential project "Cork House" in Great Britain, the wall design of a soap boutique in New York and the façade of a single-family house in Berlin.

Origami Made of Cork: Korkenzieher Haus [Engl. Corkscrew House] by Rundzwei Architekten

Cubature and façade - these two characteristics are the first to stand out when visitors espy the Corkscrew House designed by Rundzwei Architekten in Berlin-Staaken. What’s more, the house is a true spatial wonder built almost exclusively of natural materials.
