Production line luxury

Thursday 25 Feb 2010

The vanguard of homes to suit all budgets

A-cero have finished the first luxury modular houses, directed by Joaquin Torres A-cero architecture Studio, introducing a modular architecture product based on the principles of the Industrialized Construction. It applies the same 'production line' standardisation procedures to the construction, modularity, technology, quality control and time spaces that are applied to other many fields.

The Modular House benefits from the speed and cost advantages of assembly line production. Producing in-factory and assembling on-plot means that within just 3 months a new house can be enjoyed after signing. More specialized labour can increase productivity and quality as well as reducing the costs.

A-cero plan to roll out the offering of bespoke modular houses offering decoration as equipping as an extra service, in the same way you would receive a boat.Example prices are divulged as 69,000€ for an 82 sq m house as standard, or fully decorated and equipped for 85,000€.

Joaquin Torres also advised that this system need not be exclusive for residential construction - schools, offices, retirement homes or student residences could also benefit from this modular technique

The project is unique from the typical prefabricated house in offering luxury but distinct from Daniel Libeskind's recently revealed luxurious prefab in offering luxury at an affordable price, not simply for the economic elite.
