Prefabricated Glamping Tents by ArchiWorkshop

Prefabricated Glamping Tents by ArchiWorkshop | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

In South Korea, glamping—or “glamorous camping”—is all the rage. The practice combines conventional camping’s affinity for the outdoors with hotel amenities, including comfortable bedding and fine food. Seoul firm ArchiWorkshop’s prefabricated, semi-permanent glamping structures are a design-minded twist on the traditional platform tent...

Filter Studio: A Prefab Shed with Home Delivery

Filter Studio: A Prefab Shed with Home Delivery | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

This stylish prefab studio by Camera Buildings has a standard footprint of 12’-8” by 8’-5” for a total area of less than 10 sq.m. Typical features include well insulated walls, windows that allow for cross ventilation, LED lighting, wood flooring, and low VOC finishes throughout.

The beauty is that the overall building shell is well designed for you and then you customize it to your wishes, as each studio is built to order. Baths, kitchens, composting toilets, rain water collection, heating, and cooling are just a few of the features you can build in...

Make Architects Folds Prefabricated Origami Kiosks in London

Make Architects Folds Prefabricated Origami Kiosks in London | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Two prefabricated retail kiosk have been opened to the public at London canary wharf's ice sculpturing festival.

Designed by Make Architects, the unique structures are based on the folded concept of origami with hinged aluminium panels that allow the unit to expand and contract like a fan. When closed the geometric form of the kiosks is expressed as a compact, sculptural box that can be transformed and expanded during use. the lightweight design was tested and prefabricated off-site, before being easily transported to canary wharf via lorry.

Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA

Prefab House Mini Modern by MAPA | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | 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.

Osku Penttinen's curator insight, January 21, 2014 8:58 AM

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.

Casa Oruga: Containers for Nature

Casa Oruga: Containers for Nature | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
A unique prefab house by Sebastian Irarrazaval architects uses recycled shipping containers on a sloped site in Santiago de Chile to create a family home.

To reduce construction time and costs in architecture, the option is quite simple: prefab. In Santiago de Chile there’s a prefabricated house that reinforces this statement by using second hand shipping containers as the main module for the design of this unusual home. The challenge was to adapt these modular pieces to a very sloped site near the Andes Mountains. An ingenious solution was adopted by letting the containers rest on the slope, following the natural topography of the site… hence, the name of the project: Casa Oruga, whichs Caterpillar House.

Vila Alstrup in Demark: energy-plus design

Vila Alstrup in Demark: energy-plus design | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The house on the shore with a view of the Wadden Sea is an energy-plus house, which means that it produces more electricity and heat than it uses.


This was achieved without compromising on the exclusive qualities of a large home, including panoramic sea-views. The architecture uses clear and simple expression, open and transparent to the sea and more closed and private towards the neighbors. The unusual geometry of the volume is combined with a calm and unpretentious detailing, and a restrained material palette.

Designed with ‘passive house’ principles, the home is compact in form, with large windows facing the view to the south-west, to make optimal passive use of the sun’s heat. The angle also respects the shoreline protection zone, creating a triangular floor plan. The sloping roof is angled to optimize the performance of the solar heating cells. Passive solar heat gain is absorbed and accumulated in the interior concrete walls and floor slabs, while the south-west facing balcony and overhangs shade the facades and control the amount of seasonal solar energy. The balcony is a free-standing concrete slab completely eliminating any cold-bridging to the interior...

Casa Garoza: a contemporary shed in rural Spain

Casa Garoza: a contemporary shed in rural Spain | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it
Madrid-based architect Juan Herreros sees this no-frills holiday home in rural Spain as an animal occupying but not transforming the landscape.

Casa Garoza – a tiny, elegant shed in the scrubby Spanish countryside near Ávila – sits clearly within the latter camp: a modular anti-villa that is both austere and sophisticated. Derived from continuing research into modular buildings at Juan Herreros’ Madrid-based office, it was commissioned by a city-based designer-artist couple who wanted a no-frills weekend retreat. It’s a pre-fab, but in its modesty and scale, a far cry from the recent American trend for “designer” pre-fabs – reinvented double-wides for the Ikea generation.

Sitting on steel legs that are bolted to the rocks on site – without the need for any excavation – the house, Herreros says, is like an animal that occupies the landscape without transforming it. The ground continues uninterrupted beneath the building, suggesting it could be lifted up and leave no trace, and there is no landscaping apart from a simple, raised deck on one side. It comprises eight modules, which took four months to build in the factory (though Herreros estimates this could have been halved), and a day to install on site...

Celebrate Earth Day with These Low-Impact Prefab Homes

Celebrate Earth Day with These Low-Impact Prefab Homes | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Alchemy Architects, a small firm based in St. Paul, MN, has devoted their work to sustainable building practices—often through the process of prefabricated modular designs. By utilizing recycled and reused matters, along with building strategies that reduce waste, Alchemy rethinks the prototypical vacation home by striving for simplicity and minimal use of materials. Their rustic, often oxidized buildings have a way of sitting harmoniously within their settings, while yielding a minimized carbon (and physical) footprint.

To celebrate Earth Day, check out Alchemy's weeHouses, which exemplify the firm's eco-conscious reputation.

Think Small: Renzo Piano's Vitra House

Think Small: Renzo Piano's Vitra House | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Vitra’s carefully curated campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany, contains works by Herzog & de Meuron, Frank Gehry, FAIA, and Jean Prouvé, among other top-tier designers. Now the venerable Swiss furniture company has added a tiny prefab house by Renzo Piano Building Workshop to the mix. In 2013, Vitra unveiled Diogene, a 43-square-foot prototype.

In keeping with the no-frills lifestyle of its ancient Greek namesake, the philosopher Diogenes, the house consists of only one room. A slim, ultra-efficient layer of insulation is sandwiched between the cabin’s wood frame and aluminum skin. “The house is really minimal,” says Vitra project manager Aja Huber. “It’s a life where you have to think, do you want the sofa or the bed?”

Prefabricated modular home delivered into the Brazilian countryside

Prefabricated modular home delivered into the Brazilian countryside | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

MAPA of Brazil and Uruguay has built a prefabricated modular home and transported it by lorry to a picturesque spot in the countryside outside Porto Alegre.

MAPA built the mobile residence as the prototype for Minimod, a business creating bespoke modular structures; the residential retreat comprises four modules, creating separate areas for sleeping, lounging, dining and bathing within a simple steel-framed structure.

The base of the building is raised off the ground to protect it from rising damp and the roof is covered with plants that integrate a natural system of rainwater harvesting and filtration. The structure was entirely prefabricated before being delivered to its rural location, but MAPA says the buildings can also be transported in pieces and assembled onsite.

An Economical Modular Prefab in Oregon

An Economical Modular Prefab in Oregon | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The brief was basic: a simple guesthouse for a familyto live while Bohlin Cywinski Jackson designed their main residence. The architect's design for the is instantly legible with a repetition of trusses, windows, and lumber creating a strong linear profile.

A standard, repeatable, four-foot-wide bay makes use of economical, available materials, such as open-web steel trusses, plywood, laminated veneer lumber, and an insulated aluminum window system. The resulting residence is linear, with an open-plan kitchen and living space, 3 bedrooms, and an office with views over the Cascade Range.

A much better use of containers than stacking them up around economically depressed and environmentally degraded neighborhoods to the point that those in the neighborhood cannot see anything other than containers....

Prefab Connected to the Land: House for Gudrun, Austria

Prefab Connected to the Land: House for Gudrun, Austria | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

With a tight budget, focusing on the most necessary in terms of floor space and construction was essential for this residential project in Austria. The result is a two-room-apartment of prefabricated timber elements on a concrete foundation.

A large living space, two small bedrooms and the entrance are organized around a central core containing the bathroom and technical installations. Four large openings create unique views into the surrounding landscape. According to their orientation – private or public, varying in size and position, with or without parapet, each deeply cut opening has its own characteristic.

A large window to the west offering an idyllic view of the landscape and an entrance leading to the neighbors and outdoors. Sitting on the wooden terrace, the homeowner finds peace and nature, receiving regular visits of neighbors and even those from local rabbits, foxes and deer...
