TwistBOX model
on its way to Dubai

Sponsored by DHL, our TwistBOX model is flying to Dubai for the exhibition! We had so much fun making our house 25 times smaller than in real life and we cannot wait to build the real one! Our model will be presented at Dubai Solar Show and other exhibitions during the year. Our model is already in Dubai, next are us.

TwistBOX Photoshoot

Photo shoot of the updated team members is always so fun! Everyone gathers around and have a great time. Energy is positive, everyone’s happy and laughing and we motivate each other to keep going, to be better, to give 110% and to show the world what the real twist in sustainable solar architecture really is!
