Eco-Sustainable Construction System by Djuric Tardio Architects
This substantial modern house is an example of innovative and sustainable modern architecture at its best. It is situated in a quiet residential street and its overall shape echoes that of the more conventional neighboring properties.
This is where the similarity departs from tradition. Although the outline of the modern prefabricated house design is in keeping with the location, the skeleton of the apex roof has been unusually left open to the elements. In fact, it isn’t a roof at all but a large semi covered roof terrace and a safe place for children to play. The real protective covering of the modern prefabricated house design is the flat roof or floor of the terrace.
Sustainable eco-prefabricated house design
Perhaps an urban house couldn’t be more open than this one. There are numerous properties that boast minimal barriers between exterior and interior zones, but this modern prefabricated house design takes the idea to an extreme, especially in a residential area. The idea of the open attic area was to maximize use of all the space by providing an extra outdoor facility for the family. At the same time the apex structure of the modern prefabricated house design continues the rhythmic structure established by the remaining houses on the street. The family is able to use this delightful space for a wide number of activities including cultivating vegetables and fruits such as kiwi, grapes and squashes, all of which will benefit from growing up extended trellis work.
Sustainable eco house design
The interior of the modern prefabricated house design is very spacious, light and airy. It provides the perfect home for a young energetic family to thrive in. The interior design is arranged as a number of open plan modules. The main living space is flexible, as giant screen walls are in place, should a need for greater privacy emerge. A similar versatility exists between interior and exterior spaces with large sliding glass panels opening onto terraces during warm weather. So, in this way the layout of the modern prefabricated house design has been designed to maximize the adaptability of each living space depending on the season and the changing needs of the family.
The surprising aspect of this marvelous modern prefabricated house design is that it only took two weeks to erect. The main wooden structures were constructed in a workshop, enabling the on-site assembly to be very quick and efficient. To ensure sustainability only timber from carefully managed Finnish forests was used. The house has been built to maximize sources of natural energy, retain heat and reduce environmental pollution. During summer, natural cooling systems keep the interior temperature comfortable. These are incorporated through a system of clever ventilation shutters disguised as reflective windows.
