BIO-architects : DD16

Lovers of unusual housing? The studio BIO-architects will delight all fans of new experiences with its compact modular home prototype designed to take place in the most remote places, where housing usually does not belong.

More than a strange floating house, the prototype designed by BIO-architects is an architectural jewel that combines small surface - 16 square meters on the ground -, and architectural and technical reflections. Indeed, in order to adapt to the different climatic and geographical conditions, DD16 is made from a laminated wood frame, an insulator made of polyurethane foam and a composite aluminum sheet cladding. , guaranteeing a structural lightness as well as a great resistance to time.


Inside, every detail is thought to maximize the comfort of users, despite the small size. There is a bathroom with shower, a double bed, a dining area and a kitchen, also in aluminum. Just like the structure, the interior and the furniture meet the criteria of profitability of space, minimal weight and ergonomics. The furniture is recessed and niches in the wall can store elements of everyday life. DD16 is also autonomous and uses local resources for its operation as solar energy for electricity. Large windows and a small terrace offer users the opportunity to contemplate breathtaking landscapes, as diverse as they are.

A first prototype is currently installed on a lake near Moscow before production is launched on a large scale.

Better than the tent of camping, the modular house will delight all those who do not manage to choose between adventure and comfort.
