SAM Architects has partnered with Tufeco, the Carbon Free Group and Grimshaw to create a unique prefabricated housing system. The environmentally-conscious concept employs cutting edge technology and recycled materials. The model enables homeowners, developers, and investors to create an affordable living environment that can be expanded and tailored to suit the needs of its owner. While a singular modular house can be built, the system is designed to work as part of a broader community.
The Design of each of the House Type is based on a grid system which allows multiple variations to suit each project. Each house puts light, space large windows and the connection to the outside at its heart. Modern finishes, high ceilings and full height windows contribute to the modern zero carbon living.
The product is produced through a fast, automated manufacturing process, which results in an engineered quality controlled product. the dynamic digital control of realisation — directly from a BIM model to the production line — means that the current time for ‘printing’ an average house is five hours. the shell of a house can be erected within four days, while the fit-out can be completed and ready for occupation within 21 days.
