Text description provided by the architects. MINIMOD proposes an innovative, intelligent and sustainable alternative of dwelling.

Starting from a minimal module, MINIMOD invests in customization, design and sustainability.

The production is carried out in a prefabricated manner and enjoys the steel frame system technology, which lets the client adapt the space to his needs, choosing among different finishes, as well as automation options.

Depending on the composition of the modules, MINIMOD can vary the uses ranging from a compact refuge for weekends, a small showroom for events, up to hotels and inns, combining a larger number of modules.

The modules are 100% prefabricated and elevated to a determined place by truck or disassembled into smaller pieces and taken to the ground for final assembly.

The expansion and addition of new modules can be performed either at initial installation or in the middle of the process, according to the needs and budgets of the client.

MINIMOD is more than a product of design, is more than a house.
