A prefabricated module makes the “extra room” dream come true

The challenge of modular architecture is interpreted by Set Ideas through a prefabricated structure to promote essential living and encourage contact with nature.

Exploring essentiality as a primary value rediscovered with the pandemic, the Argentinean SET Ideas architectural studio designed a prefabricated modular structure to be used as a new minimal and versatile housing solution. Tailored on the needs of the client, it can be placed in heterogeneous locations, adapting to the specificities of local contexts.

Built from standard materials available on the local market also to make production costs accessible, the prefabs automatically take their dimensions, settling on three modules of 3x4, 4x6, 3x8, 4x12 meters recombinable at will. Adapted to the requests of the client, the 12 modules already installed lend themselves to function as a house, office or hut in nature, making the utopia of a simple "room of one's own" once again feasible.
