This project explores the design of modular, prefabricated low cost housing and how they can come together to create better amenity for the home owners as well as safer and more inclusive communal spaces.
The proposed terrace homes are on a 6x12m module and vary from 72 - 144sqm. The modular system creates very little construction waste. The repetitive and modular nature of prefabrication allows cost efficiency as well as speed, in comparison to traditional construction methods.
The vertical steel cladding to the exterior and timber sheet cladding to the interior gives these homes a high level of durability and low level of maintenance.
The A-Frame is our simplest and most cost effective prefabricated building. When oriented correctly it also offers the opportunity to place several solar panels on the roof, allowing the dwelling to be largely self-sufficient in terms of power.
