Prefab Housing Protoype

Atlixco (Mexico)

Prefab Housing Prototype is part of a wider project developed in central Mexico which deals with house industrialization processes. The implementation of a mixed construction system proposes the construction of a ground floor by traditional means –a brick and concrete wall closing a certain area- which is technified by a technical module. Over this enclosure, 5 prefabricated 2,44 x 6,10 x 3,06 m modules are lifted, built with metal frame structure and dry construction systems.

 

The objectual condition of this first prototype, on a site close to the Volcanoes between Puebla and Mexico City, demands the enhancement of the materiality of the house: a dark metal box on a light concrete basis.
