Inspired by the mass production of the automotive and aerospace industries, Spanish architects [baragaño], in collaboration with ArcelorMittal, have designed a housing model that can be completely constructed in a factory. Once completed, the house is transported to the site and installed.
The basic model [#bh01] is 39 square meters, composed of two volumes and can be easily expanded both horizontally and vertically in the future. According to the architects, it’s a method that “makes construction easier, generates less waste than traditional systems and increases the safety of personnel involved in the assembly work.”
With the construction process taking just 80 working days (or about four months), the project has low costs and fast turnaround, leading to a quick return on investment. The finishes are flexible and can vary depending on the user, while the house can be easily transported to a different location.
“They’re evolving houses that offer the user the option to articulate in a simple manner future growth of the space, both horizontally and vertically, as the uses change within it, with relative ease,” add the architects.
