Casa Montaña

Baragaño Architects designed this prefabricated house in galvanized steel, wood and slate in north-western Spain. The main feature of this construction is the extraordinarily short realization time: only 5 hours.

The Spanish architecture firm built the house called Casa Montaña, as a second home for a British gardener and his family in the remote and mountainous coastal region of Asturias. The modules were built in a factory in Madrid in four months and were sent 600 miles away in an old stone barn complex.

The two-storey final structure consists of eight modules 2.15 for 5.30 meters, stacked four by four. The four basic modules are cubic. The nuclei of the modules are made of galvanized steel sheets covered with thin vertical wooden strips. The ground floor is open plan, with the kitchen and living room arranged on both sides of a suspended white steel staircase. Upstairs, two bedrooms are separated by a translucent polycarbonate wall that allows light from the windows to suffocate both rooms.

Noise pollution and the impact on the surrounding environment have been reduced to a minimum, as most of the construction has been designed and built outside the site. Furthermore, eco-friendly materials have been used and the house has been designed to be energy efficient.
