A Portable House as Minimalist Statement

Categories: Architecture + Interiors


If being able to pack up and move to the middle of nowhere remains an enduring fantasy, thank the Spanish architectural firm ÁBATON for making it a bit easier. The Madrid firm has just designed a line of prefabricated Modernist portable homes that may be called idyllic, by any measure. The model homes in the ÁPH80 Series are no bare-bones camping trips, mind you. Comprised of living room, kitchen, bathroom, and master bedroom, each simply-shaped, mindfully appointed structure can be loaded up and deposited anywhere as a getaway abode. And then, most helpfully, when it’s time to leave, the house’s exterior cement wood boards can be used to shutter and seal the home completely, turning it into a fully protected, Donald Judd-esque sculptural object. Getaway? We’d be tempted to stay put permanently.
