At PSFK, we often highlight alternative materials for sustainable building. In a win for the upcycling of a common material like newspaper, the Paper House demonstrates the potential of recycled materials and their potential longevity.

Designed and constructed by Swedish immigrant, Ellis Stenman in Rockport, Massachusetts, the home was built between 1922 and 1924. The structure features a wooden frame with the walls being made of recycled newspaper glue and varnish. In addition to covering most surface areas, the bulk of the furniture is also constructed of this simple recycled material. Although originally operating as Stenman’s summer house, it was occupied from 1924-1930.
