The new project proposes a design process and construction system allowing for prefabrication and modular design...
Completely built in wood panels placed on a pedestal, the house is prefabricated in a workshop and delivered to the site to be assembled in just two weeks. The pre-cut Finnish wood panels come from sustainably managed cooperatives of small private forest owners, and they arrived at the site almost finished, reducing pollution to a minimum (as the site is located in a dense suburb).
The double-glazed windows of the patios and South façades, deliberately oversized, capture the sun in winter and are sheltered in summer. This allows, together with their performance and surface, control of the solar gain and air flow without the intensive use of air conditioning or heating.
The recovery of rainwater can water the garden and planters allow homeowners to cultivate aromatic plants and garden without water over-consumption.
