Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA

Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

This beautiful prefab house called the Mini Mod by MAPA utilizes prefab construction, allowing for the home to be built in a controlled environment, creating less of an impact on the construction site. What you see here is just a version of what can be built, expanded and created using the modular system that MAPA has designed.

The ultimate bachelor house. I would love one even just as a small cottage. Only thing is, you need to be far from neighbours and other people unless you want to know what a fish in an aquarium feels like.

Lovely crisp execution of a well tracked idea

Absolutely Prefabulous: 10 Modular Homes

Absolutely Prefabulous: 10 Modular Homes | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

The benefits of using prefabrication are many, and can result in beautiful homes that function just as well or better than custom ones built on site.

Using modular techniques for construction allows for stronger purchasing power. The process of building on site is also much quicker—and cheaper. Prefabrication is also greener since it uses computer technology to manufacture the modules, which creates 50% to 75% less material waste. The one limitation of prefabrication is that the pieces of the home need to be able to be shipped from the factory to the site of assembly.

But the benefits of prefabrication are many, and can result in beautiful homes that function just as well or better than custom ones built on site.

An Adaptable Shipping Container That Transforms For Different Uses Seamlessly

An Adaptable Shipping Container That Transforms For Different Uses Seamlessly | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

Creatives from China’s Jikerzhicheng Product Design has transformed a shipping container to be a beautiful, modular, flexible space. 

The designers used as little material as possible and incorporated circular cutouts at the tops and sides in order to allow natural light to enter, and cutouts at the bottom allow for movement in and out of the container. 

The ability and flow of the space was to be seamlessly integrated to nature. The mobile container also has the potential for constant evolution and multiple uses, such as transforming from a stage set to sleeping quarters and even a tea house, if you desire.

A Modular, Pre-fabricated Hospital in Puyo, Ecuador Surrounded by Gardens

A Modular, Pre-fabricated Hospital in Puyo, Ecuador Surrounded by Gardens | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

The 'Hospital in Puyo' is composed of eight volumes, lined-up next to one another that are separated by lush green gardens.

The county of Puyo in Ecuador has received a new healthcare facility, composed of three rows of eight staggered volumes that are each shaped with the silhouette of a house. The long pavilions are arranged next to one another, and at certain points are physically connected by pitched roof structures from the exterior, with linking hallways along the interior below. Glazing runs along the inner and outer lengths of the walls, offering visitors, patients and staff of the hospital, views of lush green landscaping planted between openings throughout the site. The challenge posed when building the complex was that it needed to be constructed in record time– less than one year– while still emerging as a first-class leading facility for the area. To finish within the time frame, the architects developed a modular architecture, with a high degree of fabrication as seen by the identical nature of the building components.

Great idea for a quality healthcare facility in developing countries.

Garoza House: A Modern, Modular Prefab Housing Prototype

Garoza House: A Modern, Modular Prefab Housing Prototype | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

An industrialized modular housing prototype that allows growth and changes over time, with all systems installed without complex construction procedures.


Manufactured in specialized factories composing single complete units, including all the interior finishes, modules are the maximum size supported by conventional transport.

Interior partitions, storage and fixed furniture are incorporated to the vertical walls, which house highly qualified technical facilities, automation and electronic systems, tailored to the program for each configuration. The resulting collection provides quality, increased control with regard to construction scheduling, maintenance plans and offers flexibility for future growth. 


The principles of sustainable economy and the spirit of recycling guide and support all the project decisions.

Flexible and Highly Original Eco-Resort in Portugal

Flexible and Highly Original Eco-Resort in Portugal | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

Luis Rebelo de Andrade in collaboration with Diogo Aguiar completed the design for seven cozy accommodation units presently known as the “Eco-Resort” and located in Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal.

 

The original resort was especially envisioned as a serene place for guests to get away and experience nature in its purest form: “Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogs with the surrounding environment“.

The interiors of the resort are highly modern and pay tribute to the minimalist style. In other words, functionality is a key factor in the design, although the architecture also ranks high in aesthetics...

Eco resorts, one subtrend of the major "sustainability on our houses and living" trend.
