Outfitted head-to-toe in mirror paneling, Casa Invisibile is a flexible housing unit, which consists of a prefabricated wood structure designed for turnkey implementation at any designated site. Designed by Vienna-based architecture firm Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, the structure features maximum flexibility, with spatial quality being a key element to its concept of development.
Casa Invisibile is a fully customizable, prefabricated and smart alternative to typical housing. Some key factors in this unique proposition are its uncomplicated assembly, its attractive price and the free choice of location. Compared to the cost-intensive and bureaucratic construction of a conventional house, Casa Invisible offers a literally groundbreaking alternative.
Upon order, the units can be stapled together to form more spacious units or grouped individually as required. The open layout is structured by a chimney and a wet cell creating three spatial units that provide for individual use and design. The structure and ambiance of the rooms are characterized by the use of domestic woods. The mounting framework and fitments of the housing unit are exclusively assembled from prefabricated elements at the factory. The homes 50 x 13 foot long dimensions of the unit make transportation safe and easy on a truck.
Inside, design choices of materials, textures and spatial proximity can be determined by the client from various options listed in a design catalog. This provides for tailor-made design options for the housing units as well as for flexible pricing options. Through modular element construction and the intensive use of wood, the housing units can be completely disassembled, which minimizes their environmental footprint. By combining innovation and mobility at a reasonable price, Casa Invisibile is a product that offers a groundbreaking alternative in an increasingly critical housing situation.
