MODULAR SOCIAL HOUSING

MODULAR PRE-FAB SOCIAL HOUSING

With overpopulation and non-renewable resources, currently most of the house developing companies are focused on modular housing as a solutions to the urgent demands and issues of our time. So does the Faktor18 from Dusseldorf, Germany. Specialized on off-site construction, they did ask from our company to develop a modular pre-fab housing concept for social purpose.

Although the specific plot was determent we have been looking at ways of designing a concept that can be adjusted in different plots, orientations and land sizes. This made us look deeper on stacking the modules in a particular way that can allow us to adjust the proportions while always having the proper insulation/orientation.

We came up with the idea of stacking the containers of angular ways which seem seems to be flexible and adaptable in various plot sizes and orientations. Having a larger facade surface, we were able to create openings on different side of the modules, create small balconies, and what is more important we could create a privacy between the units. Depending on the plot orientation, the opening direction would be determent.
