priced from 32,000 euros, the low cost pre-fabricated housing solution by madrid-based architecture firm abaton presents a portable dwelling ideal for two people, which can easily be transported by road and placed almost anywhere. entitled ‘ÁPH80′, the small container measures 27sqm (9 x 3 meters) and features an interior fully equipped with living-room/kitchen, ample sized bathroom and double bedroom. the material palette of the prefab home consists of a selection of FSC-certified spanish fir, local lumber and a combination of grey cement wood board for its facade. the ventilated exterior fabric provides 12cm of thermal insulation around the building, with a solid timber skeleton that allows large openings to bring the outdoors inside of the temporary residence. assembly time is estimated to be around one day, with manufacturing taking approximately 4-6 weeks per unit.
