An Industrialized modular housing prototype that allows growth and changes over time. The whole building process is dry, and all the constructive elements are manufactured in specialized factories, delivering single complete units-including all the interior finishings- up to the maximum size supported by the conventional transport (3m wide, 2.50m high, and up to 12m long). Only the outer layer of the façade and the roof are placed on site to ensure the continuity, overlapping and waterproofing of the material junctions. Interior partitions, storage and fixed furniture are incorporated into the vertical walls, which house high performance installations, home automation devices and other customized elements, tailored to each configuration. The result provides quality, as well as an accurate control on the construction schedules , maintenance plans and eventual extensions, improving traditional procedures. The principles of sustainable economy and the spirit of recycling guide and support all the project decisions.
