herreros arquitectos: garoza h10.1

modular housing prototype by herreros arquitectos photos by javier callejas



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.
