About Gablok - Timber-frame self-build company

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!

I heard about Gablok completely by chance on the programme “On n’est pas des pigeons”. As a keen handyman, I was immediately won over by this concept. I’d wanted to build a garage workshop for a long time. I found THE solution: lightweight and super-insulated blocks. Very competitive prices. What more could you ask for? Once the concrete slab was installed, the 40 m² garage was built in one day.
My neighbours couldn’t believe it and neither could I. I really found a very professional and friendly team! I am convinced of the product’s quality. It will certainly satisfy many self-builders.

An innovative process that deserves to be developed! Bravo!

I think the concept is very original, it lets self-builders consider projects at reasonable prices. Well done to the designers

I’m lucky enough to have seen the evolution of the show house and an artist’s studio (my sister’s) built with Gablok, and I think it’s an ingenious, quick, and fun idea! I would recommend Gablok 1,000% based on these experiences.

I think the concept is revolutionary! We want more…
And especially with passionate and professional people like Gabriel Lakatos and his partner.

Serious company and friendly boss. Don’t hesitate!
