The Refuge
MINI MOD proposes an alternative innovative, smart and sustainable dwelling, as technology takes advantage of dry construction with no waste and no mess. The walls combine energy efficiency and design. On the smaller sides, large pieces of fully transparent glass frame the landscape. The larger sides are more opaque and coated in pine plywood.
Cement boards, plywood for the outer shell, a steel frame structure along with thermo-acoustic insulation provide greater comfort. The placement of doors on either side allow cross ventilation and access. The green roof minimizes the solar incidence plus integrates it into the wild.
The four modules of this example are juxtaposed. However, as a prefabricated piece it is also flexible and can be adapted easily to form various combinations depending on the number and arrangement of modules. These are of standard size, already adjusted to the range of materials available in our market .
The MINI MOD seamlessly incorporates the concept of a landscape hotel. With a minimal program it houses four modules: the suite, pantry and kitchen , toilet , closet and bathroom. This set forms a core that is spread over 24 m2. The modules are 100% prefabricated and brought on site by truck crane or they can be disassembled into smaller pieces.
