modular sustainable house
[suitable for high altitude]
conception of a prototype
GFA 142 > 220m2


This proposal was a modular building. The combination of different modules offered an ensemble of possibilities in terms of shape, volume and use.

This house was ecological in many ways: it had upgradable and adaptable spaces, was constructed using renewable and local resources, and had a minimal impact on the site due to its prefabricated structure.
