Small spaces – great opportunities

The idea is to develop a preliminary design of a modular house with a thoughtful planning and built-in engineering communications with an area of 20 m2. For a modern lifestyle, there is a constant possibility of changing the function of space, individuality and a typical solution for convenience. Changing the size and proportions, building, or rejecting it, and of course the ability to move your home to another place.
Necessary to optimally reduce all volumes, thereby reducing the cost of construction, and maintenance of the house. Also for production it is important to make a minimum number of modules, with the maximum number of variations of the connection among themselves. Secondary use and green-planted roofs, also using sun-energy battery. The building is self-sustaining. Thats all makes this project very ecology and economical.
Small spaces is the kit of spatial experience, in which the focus is not only on the functional diversity of each modle, but on creating an experience of being in it. It is created due to the use of different coatings with a lantern of the upper light-vaulted, pitched, pyramidal. Depending on the choice of the roof, the shape, proportions and illumination of the room change, and this changes the sensations of the person’s stay in space. Externally, the house is a set of volumes composed together. Outside the construction of the house is visible . From the inside, the texture and quality of materials become the only decor.
Thus, you can design a whole district or a village from the same modules, but at the same time no one house will be repeated and will be unique. A typical solution for piece-based elements makes it possible to achieve project economics and easy replacement. Even if in the case that one of the rooms was not needed, it can easily be given to a neighbor, returned to the renovation site for further use or removed to other times.
Saved area can be used at public spaces, schools, the creation of working place close to home, children area, walking area, untouched nature.
