MAPA architects has proposed a modular, adaptable and sustainable place of residence that can occupy a variety of urban and rural locations. entitled ‘MINIMOD’, the completely prefabricated design features a flexible steel frame structure that allows the client to convert the space to suit their own specific requirements.

 

the modular nature of the project ensures that the dwelling can readily be transformed depending on its composition. the expansion and addition of new units can be implemented throughout the process according to the needs and the budget of the user. the simple structure forms a close relationship with its context, offering occupants a contemporary and comfortable place of rest. potential uses range from an events showroom to, on a larger scale, a hotel complex.
