Casa Transportable house ÁPH80 by Ábaton

Casa Transportable house ÁPH80 by Ábaton | Innovation in Construction Archive | Scoop.it
Casa Transportable house ÁPH80 by Ábaton that fits on the back of a lorry and moved by road, with cement board walls and hinged panels.

Ábaton chose dimensions of nine by three metres to provide just enough space for two people and also allow the transportable house to be hoisted onto the back of a truck.

Externally the home is clad entirely in grey cement-board panels that hinge open to reveal sliding glass doors in the front and windows to the sides.

More details and photos at the link.

Energy Box by Pierluigi Bonomo

Energy Box by Pierluigi Bonomo | Innovation in Construction Archive | Scoop.it

Using nearly zero energy, this house designed by Italian architect Pierluigi Bonomo was built in replacement of a heavily damaged building from the 2009 earthquake in L’Aquila, the region of Abruzzo in central italy.

Conceived as a volumetric insertion, the ‘Energy Box’ is defined by its new solid box perimeter. The conservation of the original building is visible with stone traces in the walls on the first level. The new structure emerges from the ground with the reminiscent pieces gradually disappearing, making way for a new physical and symbolic meaning between the heavy memories of the site’s past and the hope for a stable and better future. Acting as a mediation between the two elements, the technologically advanced new house is contained within a compact box volume.
