A prefabricated house in Spain assembled in 5 hours

A couple of English clients, in love with Asturias, decided that their second home will be industrialized. Montaña House by [baragaño] was produced during four months in a factory in Madrid and transferred to its final location at 600 km away, crossing the Cantabrian mountain range, where it was assembled in only 5 hours. Finally, the black slate roof was placed by a craftsman from the area.

The house was designed on two levels, with a simple program that groups the installations in one of the three modules of 2.15 x 5.30 m that conform it. The metal staircase is the central element of the dwelling around which the program runs and which dialogues with the chimney suspended from the living room. The upper floor contains the two rooms, separated by a light polycarbonate wall that sifts the light.

It is a home for an English landscaper and his family, which was actively developed with the clients and who were involved in the project from the very beginning, showing absolute respect for the rural environment where it is located. A wonderful complex formed by an “hórreo” and a traditional dwelling.

The system used is a modular three-dimensional components system manufactured in assembly. The main structure is composed of galvanized steel sheet elements with rigid joints solved by welding, fulfilling all requirements set by the CTE. The modular construction system manufacturing assembly line not only seeks to optimize energy resources, human and material, but also to optimize in the benefit of the customization and adaptation of the building.
