With the advent of technology, architecture is changing fast. To meet consumer demand and preserve the environment, firms are developing prefabricated abodes which can be assembled in a matter of days — if not hours. In fact, the newest prefab home constructed by studio [baragaño] is situated in Valdés, Spain, and took just 5 hours to assemble.
After four months of building the modern home, it was delivered to the small town in Asturias, northwest of Madrid. There, it was assembled in a matter of hours. As Freshome reports, the Montaña House is intended to be a stylistic mix between a traditional home and granaries found in the area.
There are two levels to the small prefab house. The social areas are downstairs and all bedrooms are on the second floor. The interior is simple yet comfortable, with wooden flooring and black and white wall finishes. Light polycarbonate panels allow natural light to penetrate the spaces and add warmth.
A centerpiece of the design is a metal staircase around which spaces are organized. There is even a fireplace suspended from the living room ceiling. Finally, the architects embellished the Montaña House with a traditional slate roof, made by a local artisan.
“The metal staircase is the central element of the dwelling, around which the program runs and which dialogues with the chimney suspended from the living room,” explained the architects. “The upper floor contains two rooms, separated by a light poly-carbonate wall that sifts the light.”
According to Inhabitat, the house was purchased by and assembled for an English landscaper and his family.
