I believe, I have seen this beautiful prefab house called the Mini Mod by MAPA before but I recently came across it again and liked better the second time. Just looking through these images makes me want to buy a small spot of land and drop a few of these down. The prefab construction allows for the home to be built in a controlled environment, creating less of an impact on the construction site. What you see here is just a version of what can be built, expanded and created using the modular system that MAPA has designed. I love all of the small details that make the design look like a fully custom project.
“MINIMOD proposes an innovative, intelligent and sustainable alternative for dwelling, enjoying the benefits of the off site construction (OSC) technology, with no waste and no mess. The house has a modulated structure and design, which allows multiple configurations and customizations. Starting from a minimal module, MINIMOD invests in customization, design and sustainability.”
“The production is carried out in a prefabricated manner and enjoys the steel frame system technology, which allows the client program definition needs and choice of finishes, as well as automation options. Depending on the composition of the modules, the MINIMOD offers different possibilities – ranging from a compact weekend retreat, a small show room for events up to larger programs and elaborated as hotels and inns, combining a larger number of modules. The modules are 100% prefabricated. MINIMOD than is take to any site by truck or disassembled into smaller pieces and taken to the ground for final assembly. This allows for a clean work without harming the natural environment.”
