Casa Transportable house ÁPH80 by Ábaton

Casa Transportable house ÁPH80 by Ábaton | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | 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.

This is a unique house, it looks like a box but it totally different.

Two Passive Solar Gain Houses in Porthtowan by Simon Conder Associates

Two Passive Solar Gain Houses in Porthtowan by Simon Conder Associates | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

Two passive solar gain houses built into the side of a hill in the English coastal village of Porthtowan on the Cornish coast by Simon Conder Associates.

The new buildings, which are partly buried in the hill to avoid obstructing views from properties higher up the slope, have a reduced impact on the landscape. Both are built into the 1 in 7 slope of the hillside, so the houses are single storey on the road side and two storey on the seaward side.

The two adjacent sites face south and this orientation creates two passive solar gain houses to minimise both the use of fossil fuels and energy costs. This has been achieved partly by fully glazing the southern elevations of the two houses and partly by using highly insulated, high mass construction for the remainder of the two houses.
