The VIMOB Modular Mobile Home by Colectivo Creativo
Based on the concept of a developing a prefabricated dwelling that can be assembled in isolated areas with difficult accessibility with limited available materials, the architects at Colectivo Creativo Arquitectos created the VIMOB modular housing solution, a modular home that can be easily transported and assembled, creating a comfortable setting for its inhabitants and allowing them to live in faraway and previously isolated areas. The first VIMOB prototype was placed in Matapalo, Colombia. The architect developed a pier-and-beam foundation system that is easier and faster assembled to site requiring a minimum of tools. This type of prefabricated system manages to reach the most difficult terrain, reduces waste in raw materials, environmental transport costs, and minimizes its carbon footprint. The dwelling has a rustic aesthetic consisting of a patchwork of timber on the exterior and a wood finished interior using oriented strand board for the walls and pine for its ceilings. The buildng offers an open floor plan merging, living and dining into one space with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the opposite end of the space. Take a look at the complete project below.
