designed by delugan meissl associated architects (DMAA), this reflective housing unit consists of a prefabricated timber structure ready for implementation at any designated plot. appropriately named ‘casa invisible‘, the building is 14.5 meters in length and 3.5 meters in width, which allows the scheme’s individual pieces to be easily transported to site.

offering its occupants a high degree of spatial flexibility, the open layout is structured by a chimney and a wet room, delineating three areas for individual use. pale timbers and white furnishings are used throughout the interior, accentuating the bright and spacious atmosphere inside the small dwelling.

through the use of modular construction and the intensive use of wood, the housing units can be completely disassembled – minimizing their environmental footprint. other advantages of the product are its relatively low cost, uncomplicated assembly, and its potential to suit a variety of locations.
