Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA

Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA | POC+P architects | 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.

Patrick O'Carrigan's insight:

Wonderlight- the filtered top down light of southlights is perfectly balanced by superb LEDs.

 

Artificial light was always the best plan, if one does not perceive it.This is particularly true for light tasks such as museums, where it depends not only on the brightness, but also on the quality of light.

How easy it can be at the end of today, we can be seen in the building converted by Foster + Partners Lenbachhaus in Munich.
