English clients, in love with Asturias, decide that their second home will be industrialized. Produced during four months in a factory in Madrid and transferred to its final location at 600 km, crossing the Cantabrian mountain range, where it will assemble in only 5 hours. Finally, the black slate roof is placed by a craftsman of the zone. Technology and tradition in the days of Brexit.

This modern modular house is developed in 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.

System of modern modular house:
The fact of produce our homes in a factory and transporte them to the site completely finished, apart from get more control over the quality of work, means several advantages which are listed below.
1. Costs and lead time reduction and therefore faster benefits [4 months].
2. Higher security at work and reduction of potential working risks.
3. High quality construction, meeting the requirements of the CTE and energy Efficiency.
4. Different materials option. Adaptable and exportable housing [Growing Houses].
5. Option of relocate the house in other place [Mobility].
6. Real sustainability from the way of building and used materials. Optimization and Recycling.
7. Noise, discomfort and waste reduction. The main work is done at the factory.
8. Project, design, manufacture and assembly of the house.
9. Structural Safety and precision, overall in earthquake zones.
10. Accessible Housing and elevator option.

Energy Efficient Home with Sweeping Views of Lake Washington

Built on a steep slope lot in Seattle with sweeping views of Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, the project presented a number of challenges, both technical and permit-related. As a designated Environmentally Critical Area (ECA) Steep Slope, the lot is subject to a far more rigorous standard of review than an ordinary flat lot.
