one+ modular homes

image: johan robach

one+ is a housing concept by the swedish company add-a-room that allows users to build their home through prefabricated modules. the system was designed by danish architect lars frank nielsen and uses 15m square rooms as building blocks for dwellings. the units are built off site and assembled on location to streamline the process and keep costs down. users can use one module or combine multiple ones to create their own design. the system uses local swedish materials and energy efficient windows and doors. basic units start at around 35,000 USD.

  • What a great idea! It means you can start of with a small house and make it larger as your finances grow.

    James says:
  • they are simply fantastic…they look a bit like british beach houses in the whistable-frinton area check out

    roberta cutolo-adjaye LONDON says:
  • I like the simplicity of the fittings. The end product is attractive and yet not difficult to pull off.

    rcvs1 says:
  • Traditional Thai house architecture is the similar concept, but in different style due to tropical climate and conditions of location, land, and purposes of the structure.

  • I love the idea of being able to live with less and enjoying more of what is naturally around you, making for a great place to get away to.

  • swedish concept. build your own house using the pre-cast module provided and expand whenever you like. First time heard of DYI-architecture and construct your home…swedish is well known for DIY furniture (IKEA)and now they have architecture! .

    TheBlurblock says:
  • Nice work

    Rihana says:
  • This is offering us a new way of looking at our living habits of the past and correct our vision of living.

    Ashley Helmich says:
  • love it – see also something similar in the aussie vernacular although more one off than production line – love the idea that this client (famous aussie film director) has thought small rather than HUGE for their escape pad.

    to all those architects and designers out there – please maintain the message – small and perfectly formed is soooo the way to go
