Description by architects

This project responds to the need to build a 2 bedroom modular house for a couple in the town of San José de Maipo.

As key requirements, the need for flexible spatiality was established, which would enhance the views of the property and that the implementation of the modular house respond to a prefabricated system that minimized the work on site.

In response, a program with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a loggia and a living-dining room with an integrated kitchen is proposed. The program is developed in a volume that has its longitudinal faces with absolute transparency in the east-west direction.

As a construction method, 3 fully enabled modules are executed in Santiago, which were moved and assembled on the ground to shape the final volume.

The construction time in plant was 8 weeks and assembly, 3 weeks.

The approximate cost of the 2 bedroom prefab modular house is around 28 uf/sqm, VAT included.
