Palm Springs Modular House
Flexible Location - first prize
The Palm Springs project involved a strong branding strategy for the manufacturer - Riko Hise d.o.o. A series of 4 size variants of the same generic house was developed: the A2, A3, A4, A6 - each of them offering the possibility of further compositional modifications. The basic element of the Palm Springs series is a standardized modular unit, with clearly distinguishing sectional, compositional and formal properties of the living spaces of the house. The ground floor plan was intentionally kept simple to permit additional modification - the modules are easily interchanged or added to the basic composition. The construction consists of prefabricated wood-panels for floors, outer walls, bearing walls and the roof. Vocabulary: composition of modular units, branding strategy, prefabricated wood panels, CAD/CAM.
