Portable Home APH80-ABATON Architects-01-1 Kindesign

Project Portable Home ÁPH80 is a design by Madrid based ÁBATON Architects, a dwelling ideal for two people, easily transported by road and ready to be placed almost anywhere. This tiny house is comprised of only 290 square feet (27 square meters), sectioned into private and public spaces and ready for immediate placement. The proportions are the result of a thorough study by the architectural team so that the different spaces are recognizable and the feeling indoors is one of fullness. This low cost pre-fabricated housing solution is priced from $42,862, with an estimated one day assembly time and manufacturing taking approximately 4-6 weeks per unit.

It blends in with the environment thanks to its large openings that bring the outdoors inside. The use of wood throughout the building not only adds calmness and balance but it is also hypoallergenic. The sourced wood comes from regulated forests (will regrow to provide a wide range of other benefits such as further carbon storage, oxygen generation and forest habitat).
