The history of Gablok

Stacking blocks: child’s play


Gablok is an idea born out of a love for the interlocking building block toys of our childhood. Founder Gabriel Lakatos worked in traditional construction for over 25 years before filing the Gablok patent in 2018.

Gablok was founded in Belgium in 2019 with a single objective: to enable anyone to build their own construction project.

Gablok is now targeting self-builders with a construction method that is revolutionising the building world.

This involves a flat-pack timber house system inspired directly by the famous interlocking building block toys we all know. The concept involves stacking insulated wooden blocks on top of each other to build the structure of a house. All this without the need for drying time, glue, or construction knowledge.

A daring project that has already enabled many enthusiasts to embark on the construction project they had in mind!

The history of Gablok

Gablok's team converts your architect's plans to his kit. You will have a clear and precise plan that will help you in the construction of your project.

We guide you in the elaboration of the foundation slab and in the installation of the first series of wooden blocks.

Then it's up to you!

You don't need a lot of tools to get started on a Gablok project.

A screwdriver, a ladder and, of course, your arms will be enough to build the entire insulated structure.

House, workshop, garage, garden shed or annex, building it yourself is child's play!

The history of Gablok

An international strategy

The Gablok concept is protected by an international patent.

Our kit houses are now produced in several countries around the world, in Europe and elsewhere.

If our partners produce according to the Belgian Gablok model, we keep in mind our desire to provide our self-builders with quality materials from a short circuit. That's why in each country where one of our partners is located, there is also its own production of blocks.
