ONV Architects Prefab Homes


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 customers’ 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].

  1. The rectangular shape is very interesting.Although it is not big and doesn’t have drastic building design , it is complete.

  4. What a great house for the USA.

    !Modular / prefab homes will offer solutions to the world’s housing shortage for the deprived, under-privileged and low income populations in society by providing a total system for basic, low-cost, quality built housing. The modular housing constructed with sandwich panels is the lowest in cost, most rapidly erected, simplest in design, and most structurally sound basic housing in existence today. Plus, you can ship 21 houses in a 40 foot container.
