In this note, we prove that the identity matrix is an inner point of the quasiconvex hull formula11 of a compact set formula13 whenever formula11 contains a three-well configuration. This is in particular the case for the cubic to tetragonal and the cubic to orthorhombic phase transformations, and answers a question discussed in [S. Müller, Microstructures, phase transitions and geometry, in: Proceedings European Congress of Mathematics, Budapest, 1996, Birkhäuser 1998]
