Folding Home (Model A2238 – 2bd/2ba)


Shanghai-based AMC Box’s latest folding home – Model A2238 – combines centuries-old origami design with its latest patented hinge technology to make a home worthy of high-ranking generals and the general public alike. Unfolding from a ready-to-ship 8.5-foot wide package – this 300 square foot, 2-bedroom/2-bath home is literally reshaping how we view rapid shelter design.

Ready (In Stock)


2 residents / 2-bed/2-bath

$14,133 / resident

Long-Term/Permanent (15+ years)

15 days offsite 1 days onsite

Made of 100% aluminum alloy, which is much lighter than the steel house but with 117km/h wind resistance. It only takes 3 minutes by 3 people to spread out the house without a crane, so that you can move whenever & wherever you want, making it ideal for remote locations and good for camping. It’s a highly integrated house with bathroom, folding bed, LED lights, electrical socket, and an air conditioner. Can be lived in immediately when the house reaches the destination. It can be folded more than 1,000 times based on our patent hinges. A 40’HQ can hold 18 sets (11sqm/set), saving on transportation costs. Every single unit can be connected together to make bigger space as the office.

Design Advantages Almost all rapid deployment houses are made of iron, and we choose aluminum because of its high texture, and aluminum does not need annual regular maintenance, will not rust, is a green material.
Many folding houses need cranes when they are installed on site. We only need forklift to unload the house. It can be spread out in 3 minutes by 3 people manually to achieve quick check-in.
When a project finishes, it can be folded up in 3 minutes and shipped in a container to the next project, truly achieving a fast, movable turnkey solution.
