Andrew Maynard‘s Holl House starts off as a vertical column, then unlocks into a horizontal network of hinged structures. “How can the housing industry make exciting, well designed and cheap housing?” Maynard asks. “Easy, mimic the car industry.”
“The dimensions of the basic module are dictated by the maximum dimensions available to be transported legally on Australian roads without permits.” The house is then assembled on-site, where “work is minimised to the installation of a steel ‘train track’ footing system allowing the prefabricated modules to simply be slid into place. The prefabricated module is based on a rigid galvanised steel frame with plasterboard internal finish and stained farmed pine external skin.”
