spanish firm herreros arquitectos have designed an industrialized modular housing prototype
that allows growth and changes over time. all of the building systems, are ready to be
installed without complex construction procedures. the elements are manufactured in
specialized factories, where single units are composed, including all of the interior finishes.
the maximum size supported by conventional transport is (3m wide, 2.50m high, and up
to 12m long). once the modular housing prototype is delivered, the last layer of the facade
and the roof is put in place to ensure continuity, overlap and waterproofing of the material
junctions. interior partitions, storage and fixed furniture are incorporated to the vertical
walls, which house highly qualified technical facilities, automation and electronic systems
and other elements, are tailored to the program for each configuration.
the result of the collection provides quality, control on the schedules of construction,
maintenance plans and desirable changes for growth.
