Unfortunately, I don’t read [or speak, for that matter] Danish – so I don’t have that much information on the project. Designed by Danish firm ONV Architects, the home is a modular [really?] prefab that is both customizable and [supposedly] affordable.
Personally, I’m a huge fan of the overall form – that the house is contained within such a clean rectangular shape, and that the porch is formed by carving out a void, rather than attaching something extra to the building.
The minimalist residence is available in six basic configurations which can be adapted to the customersâ€™ specific needs, as well as expanded with additional prefabricated segments. Due to the high degree of prefabrication it can be purchased for a relatively small amount: the smallest version is manufactured entirely in the factory, and delivered to the site by a lorry; the larger types are made up of two to four segments.
The result is a pared-down structure, its wood-stud facade clad with Siberian larch, the interior walls with plasterboard. In each type the floor plan is centred around a large space accommodating living and dining areas and an open kitchen which can be adjoined to a veranda. The interior spaces are linked to the exterior with extensive glazing [via Detail.de].
