Ukrainian architect creates module mobile houses


Module mobile houses designed by Ukrainian architect Yuri Motienko can be built in one month. Another day is spent on its installation and connection of all communications. Disassemble the house and move with him closer to the river, or in another city is possible for one or two days, reports AIN (RU).

“The module is based on SIP panel and glulam, which make design rigid, strong and without metal parts – that is without thermal bridges and thus unnecessary heat loss,” says Motienko, founder of OMM studio and co-owner of Module House.

IMG_3511-1The walls are made from OSB-panels of 10 mm and BASF with graphite, which reduces heat loss. Also, this material is fire-resistant.

Mobile module home is rather expensive. Completely finished house, with a maximum complement and a set of built-in furniture, LED-lighting, “smart home” control system costs as a two-room flat: $ 54,000.
