Papillon: the compact, eco-friendly wooden house

Le Papillon is a truly compact and innovative wooden house! It sleeps 4 in two separate areas. Its facades and layouts have been designed to create a bright, pleasant interior with low energy consumption. A real ecological and economic asset that lets you combine business with pleasure!

Thanks to the 11 windows and large openings on all sides of this modern wooden cottage with mezzanine, you can enjoy maximum light! Even at night, you can watch the starry sky from all four sides of your house! High ceilings give a real sense of space.

The Papillon flat-roofed timber construction features a 10m² mezzanine, ideal for a comfortable, spacious bedroom, a living area of over 12m2, with a bright living room, dining room and kitchen, and a 4.2m² bathroom. All of which offers you a space of almost 30m2 without the need for planning permission. Furnish the interior as you wish, and feel right at home in a cosy, woodsy atmosphere!

The materials used

Quadrapol’s design office chose spruce for the cladding of this functional and aesthetic garden studio by-product. In fact, in addition to being FSC and PEFC certified, this material has a number of advantages.

Natural protection, with cladding made from a natural wood species that is highly resistant to external attacks: insects, fungi, weather.

High-performance insulation: cladding combined with wood wool, waterproofing and panelling provides excellent insulation. Thanks to its thermal insulating properties, it helps reduce energy consumption in your home. The insulation is completed with a German-made vapour and rain screen.

Durable materials: opting for wood construction guarantees a long-term investment. A wooden house has no estimated lifespan. Take, for example, the wooden houses built hundreds of years ago in mountain pastures or medieval towns!

How to install the Papillon wooden loft?

Your Papillon is manufactured in our own workshop. Once finished, it is loaded onto a truck. It is then delivered assembled to its final location.

What foundations?

Le Papillon, like our Twenty Lodge garden studio, doesn’t require large, soil-invasive foundations. It can be installed on solid breezeblocks or blocks. If you already have a slab, it can be used.

We’re talking about light housing. This means that your Papillon can be easily installed on these foundations using a crane. If you want to move it as your life unfolds, simply hire a lifting company and load it onto a low-bed truck. Your little wooden house will follow you everywhere!

Say "yes" to eco-friendly living with the butterfly wood loft!

For each Butterfly, Quadrapol finances the planting of 20 trees in an afforestation or reforestation project in France. One step closer to carbon neutrality!

Papillon: the compact, transportable wooden loft

Designed for 4 people, the Papillon is a compact little wooden house par excellence.

It features a fixed double bed upstairs, and can easily accommodate two extra beds in the living room. This turnkey garden studio has it all!

The history of the butterfly wood loft

The Papillon little wooden house project was born in 2014. Produced in the same vein as its little cousin, the Twenty garden studio, Papillon was a highly promising project. With its modern architecture, its functionality, with a real mezzanine and height, and its environmentally-friendly, high-performance materials. After years of waiting, we have finally built the project that was so close to our hearts. The chrysalis that was still slumbering in the state of plans and 3D models has become a real Butterfly, even more beautiful than in our imagination.

Housing that meets today's challenges

Papillon is ideal for gardens or small plots. With a footprint of 20m2, it’s a perfectly optimized space, bathed in light and very well insulated. With a surface area of 30 m2, it offers all the comforts required for year-round occupancy. A living environment that enables everyone to find a housing solution in line with their values and life goals. And it doesn’t require planning permission!

A self-sufficient, eco-friendly wooden cottage

Le Papillon, like all our models, may have autonomy options, so install it on an undeveloped plot. No more bills, which is a real comfort with rising electricity prices. Thanks to its excellent thermal insulation and waterproofing, it rivals the passive house. As a result, little heating is required. And that means much lower bills! With its main façade facing south, you can enjoy the warmth of the sun in winter.

European manufacturing

At Quadrapol, we use only European-made materials. The wood species used are FSC or PEFC certified and come from sustainably managed forests. Insulation is provided by wood or mineral wool, and waterproofing by German-made rainscreen and vapour barrier. Germany is one of the most advanced countries in the world in terms of passive and ecological housing. We source many materials from them, including the wood used to build the structure: KVH.
