The interior of a small house KODA InteriorThe small KODA house created by the Estonian design studio Kodasema is truly impressive. Unlike tiny American modular buildings, it boasts 23 square meters of living space - a living room, a bathroom, and even storage facilities on its two levels. It is possible that this project will really become revolutionary. The founder of the company Ular Mark, dealing with them, tried to answer all questions about this development. “Comparison with the automobile plant is quite appropriate. Why houses do not supply with difficult electronics? Why not build them using perfectly calibrated robots? Why do cars have a carefully designed design, and most houses are built in a hurry and completely devoid of it? It really hits in the eyes, especially if we recall that the car has a tendency to turn into scrap metal after 15 years, and the house, presumably, will serve for several centuries. Logically, one can conclude that the houses should have the best design. This conclusion, unfortunately, is not related to the current reality. ” The interior of a small house: "Lego" for adults The walls, 15 centimeters thick, consist of several layers - fibrous concrete panels outside, reinforcing wood laminated strips inside, as well as vacuum insulation panels between the first two. As a result, their heat absorption coefficient is very high - about 0.1 W / m²K, and for double-glazed windows - three times more! These are very high rates. The use of such houses is very economical. For example, the construction of one such, will require only 9 square meters of concrete, and at the end of its service, all components can be extracted and reused. To build a KODA, you don’t need to dig a lot - or, if you can do that, you have to suffer from the foundation. With all the volume of the house, its foundation is very small - only 25 square meters. A very small room containing, moreover,everything you need The walls and ceilings are made of flat panels, to which empty three-dimensional modules are attached at each end — one adds a bathroom, an engine room and an attic, the other one is double-glazed windows, which are inserted directly into concrete without using traditional frames. Both three-dimensional modules also add strength to the structure. See how they disassemble the prototype at the factory, load it into trucks and reassemble in Tallinn: A ceiling height of 4 meters could cause problems with transportation in North America, where the maximum dimensions allowed on the tracks are only slightly higher. On the other hand, the ceiling of the bathroom does not even reach the lower limit of the standard, and definitely will not cause any problems. Very clear drawing In his interview, Ulartalks about his ambitions in more detail: “I want to build a thousand houses, continuously improving the quality and interior, at the same time reducing the cost. As a professional, I feel more like a car designer than an architect. The only difference here is that I seem to be responsible for the appearance of the parking lots. ” The tiny house nature is not the enemy Of course, for allthese advantages, there are several problems - even such a house needs earth, water and a sewer, these are quite ordinary difficulties inherent in other modular models. Of course, to start selling them in the thousands will have to be patient. But Mark is already on the way to his dream - and, by the way, appreciate this bike stand! When the designer said that everything is in the house, hereally had it in mind. I would like to believe that this material did not disappoint your expectations and small houses are your new idea-fix.
