the architectural strategy for marcos franchini‘s ‘house 3e30’ develops from a 100m² plot divided into a nine-square grid. this creates 3.30 by 3.30 meter parcels established to set boundaries of environments and structural axes. with the occupations accomplished through modules (either home or work, dry or wet areas, covered or open), the proposal has the ability to fit the unique needs of each owner. satisfying these demands are efficiently dimensioned enclosures for terraces, connections, kitchens, water closets, and garages.

a model residence was constructed from a combination of different compartments organized from a central outdoor patio so that social and intimate environments are gradually separated in relation to street and the backyard of the property. the result demonstrates the flexibility of the method, as it successfully grants the coexistence of a workspace and dwelling within the same setting.

as part of the project, an assay was performed to implement a village in the jardim canada district of nova lima, brazil, where a section of land could be filled. in an urbanized area with 204-by-60 meter blocks and 30-by-12 meter standard lots, a repetition and multiplicity of architectures specific to the individuals that inhabit them can create entire communities with dynamic interactions amongst programs. the intent is to illustrate the potential that the use of this system can foster in a consolidated context, changing how estates are distributed to homeowners.

  • I’m a great fan of modular buildings and this design makes me happy! There are some interesting possibilities linking the different modules. I;m curious to know which construction method is used to connect the modules.
