Portable House ÁPH80 by Ábaton Arquitectura

Spanish architecture studio Ábaton has developed a twenty-seven square metres house that can be easily transported on the back of a lorry and placed almost anywhere. “The proportions are the result of a thorough study by our architects’ team so that the different spaces are recognisable and the feeling indoors is one of fullness” said Ábaton.

A combined living room and kitchen is positioned in the centre with a full bathroom and a double bedroom either side. Its gabled roof is 3,5mts high indoors. Most of the materials can be recycled and meet the sustainable criteria that Ábaton applies to all its projects. ÁPH80 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.

Externally the home is clad entirely in grey cement-board panels which provide a solid look to the house. The unit can be manufactured in four to six weeks and assembled in just one day.
