Architectural office SoNo arhitekti teamed up with Slovenian manufacturer of low energy and passive prefabricated buildings Lumar to design a home that would suit the needs of a modern family and the visual appeal of the world. Displaying cubic architecture and an interesting dynamic shape that changes with every vantage point, this prefabricated home design makes you question your perspective on transparency.
This particular prefabricated house design spreading over 180 square meters “consists of two different size volumes with one-gable roof.”
The rise of quality building material and architectural vision leads us to see inspiring homes everyday. Now even more, prefabricated house design catches up with customization design to offer new alternatives on the real estate market.
“The unified facade constructed of large format panels emphasizes the dynamics of the house’s form. Nevertheless, the type of materials that are used are subdued. Dominant material is wood in its natural colors that are combined with light shades of the facade’s surfaces. Larger glazed surfaces present the connection to its natural surroundings. The result is a modern residential building with optimal functional floor plans, which offer a comfortable and a pleasant living.”
According to its designers, the prefabricated house uses transparency to its advantage: “While we enter into an open spacious groundfloor area which because of its shape slowly reveals as a pleasant intimate ambience to the visitor. The living room offers a lot of light through the large glazed window surfaces. They are designed as a sitting area from where we can observe the surroundings. A prominent staircase leads us to the upper sleeping area through the gallery that overlooks the living area below. The sleeping area consists of a large bedroom with its own dressing room and a bathroom, two smaller rooms with a smaller bathroom.”
You can see it in one of the biggest show parks for prefabricated houses, FertighausPark Blaue Lagune in Wiener Neudorf. Photographs by Matevž Paternoster give us a glimpse into the dynamic design, but if you’re in Vienna, you should see this prefabricated house for yourself.
