Just five hours to mount a prefabricated house
Baragano Architects designed this prefabricated house made from galvanised steel, wood and slate in northwestern Spain to take only five hours to erect. The modules took four months to be made in a factory in Madrid, before being shipped 600 miles over the Cantabrian mountain range to the site of an old stone granary complex.

The finished home is modern in its construction but the finish fits aesthetically with its old fashioned rural surroundings. The final two-storey structure is composed of eight 2.15-by-5.30-metre modules, stacked four by four. The base four modules are cubic, with the angled top four joining together to form an asymmetrical gabled roof. The cores of the modules are composed of galvanised steel sheets clad in thin vertical wooden slats.

The ground floor is open plan, with the kitchen and living room arranged either side of a suspended white steel staircase. To one side of the living area, a black wood-burning stove hangs against the white walls. A wooden deck runs around three sides of the house, with large glass doors and windows opening out from the living areas to the porch. Upstairs, two bedrooms are separated by a translucent polycarbonate wall that allows light from the windows to suffuse both rooms.

Noise pollution and disruption for the rural location were kept to a minimum, as the bulk of the construction was done offsite, while the lead time reduction kept the costs low. Sustainable materials were used in the construction and the house is designed to be energy efficient. Should the owners wish, the house can be taken apart and moved to a new location. Along with the financial and environmental benefits, prefabricated architecture is ideally suited to constructing buildings in hard to access locations.
