SIPCO has supplied its high performance SIPs for use in the Wunderhaus system – a house building system created by German architect Nico Rensch. Wunderhaus is a house-building system that combines extensive research, innovative design, and state-of-the-art technology. The result is a highly efficient, fully-fitted, and cost-calculated prototype home. Manufactured offsite, Wunderhaus takes a product-based approach meaning clients can create a bespoke design to precise specifications. A Wunderhaus show home has been completed in Battle, East Sussex.

Key to the design of the Wunderhaus system is the use of energy-efficient components and materials. The Wunderhaus team selected SIP wall panels, roof, and external envelope (excluding glazing) due to the adaptability and environmental performance. Structured Insulated Panels (SIP) minimise energy waste and noise penetrations while being more airtight than alternative building materials. This means the energy used to heat and cool rooms can reduce by up to 50%, making homes quieter and they require less fuel. SIPs also offer lower carbon emissions.
