The tiny country house Minimod, an alternative to traditional construction
The Brazilian architecture firm MAPA developed a unique creative project Minimod in 2013 in the charming city of Maquiné (Brazil). This particular home acts as the perfect destination for a vibrant and eventful weekend.
Its area is only 27 square meters, but it connects in its space several comfortable and functional areas for living, rest, leisure and entertainment.
Design Workshop MAPA is a two-way team that works on architectural projects in Brazil and Uruguay. This dual geographic location allows him to explore the limits of unconventional production formats and interesting home decor .
The studio initially established itself from a professional and scientific point of view: two complementary fields that create and shape the creative masterpieces of its work.
The prefabricated concept of Minimod Apartments is unique in that many small modules such as this one can be combined to create stunning and endless combinations of architectural environments. The tiny country house offers an innovative, intelligent and sustainable type of alternative housing.
Starting from the minimum module, the apartments invest in adaptation, design and sustainable development of the building. The production is prefabricated and uses a system technology based on a steel frame structure that allows the customer to adapt the space to their needs, choosing between various finishes and automated housing functions.
Depending on the composition of the modules, the structure can vary in its scope of use, from a compact weekend hideout and a small showroom for events, to hotels and inns that combine a large number of blocks with incredible decor ideas .
Modules are 100% prefabricated and erected at a specific location using a truck, they can also be disassembled into small pieces and taken to the intended location for final assembly.
Expansion and addition of new modules can be done during the initial installation or midway through the process, depending on the client’s needs and budget.
MINIMOD is more than a unique design product, it is not a simple tiny country house, but a unique innovative mechanism. It represents practicality combined with comfort, economy in harmony with nature, and a unique experience of installing modular housing for modern life.
The façade of the building is faced with black relief panels, which, in combination with the natural shade of wood, create an excellent contrast. Folding windows allow transforming the room, hiding it from prying eyes and providing complete privacy, or opening and filling the room with sunlight and warmth.
The layout of the space of the tiny country house is open, it includes several functional areas: a dining room, a living room and a cozy bedroom.
The walls, floor and ceiling are decorated with wood panels in a light golden hue with an amazing texture. The restrained austere image is complemented by panoramic window units with a smoky coating. They allow you to enjoy the expressive nature, the calm surface of the lake and the serene atmosphere.
The exterior of the building is made in the correct geometric shape in the form of a rectangle. Its clean lines and clear silhouette blend in perfectly with its surroundings.
Magnificent natural surroundings, picturesque lake views and a green valley complete the modest and minimalist decor of this small yet extremely attractive structure.
