Casas inHAUS SL as Arquitecto y constructor

Many architects have approched industrialization through the history of contemporary architecture. Nowadays, the technological advances of stronger and lighter materials finally make it possible for industrialized high-end architecture, with full creative freedom, to become a reality. This house in residential area on the outskirts of Barcelona (Spain), designed and manufactured by the spanish company Casas inHAUS, founded in Valencia (Spain) by architects, is an example of turnkey solutions, respectful of the environment and with an integral management that guarantees deadlines and closed prices. Homeowners and architects can truly demand a bespoke home with the convenience of modular build practices.

 

The main challenges of the project were the adaptation to the sloping terrain, on a triangular-shaped plot and very restricted regulations.

 

The choice of materials such as wood, porcelain ceramic and aluminum responded to the fact that the owners are innovative people, who were looking for new references, which would adapt to their lifestyle, the Mediterranean environment and their personal aesthetic sense.

 

The quality of designs and finishes of this Casas inHAUS project has earned an IF Design Award and an Honorable Mention from World of Modular (WOM 2021), among other recognitions.

 

In less than half a year, a home with a spectacular design is the setting for a family home in Masnou, a coastal town in the province of Barcelona. Quality of details and premium finishes, in addition to the advantages of industrialized construction and a turnkey service. The houses are manufactured by a team of specialized operators who work as an assembly line and are implanted in their plots with a logistics that allows the house to be finished in about 4 hours. Everything the manufacturing process and architectural finish take about 5 months. They always work high quality and all their homes have energy rating A.

 

This design has been materialized inspired by the modern and timeless style that its owners were looking for. A true turnkey since the commission consisted of both the design and construction of the whole of the house as well as the pool and the garden that share a common language and the same materials. The starting point is inHAUS 111 Colection, a catalog with 111 models, that are customized according to the needs both of the client as their tastes and the conditions of the plot. Thanks to the design capacity of Casas inHAUS we discover the soul of the industrialized concrete houses with which the Valencian company works.

 

On a plot with a certain unevenness and beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea, this custom- made 2-storey house is located. The volume of the house closes on its rear facade, which overlooks the public access road, and opens the views of all the rooms towards the sea. The large glass panels allow the spaces to establish a harmonious dialogue with the environment and blur the boundaries between interior and exterior. Just walk through the door entrance to the house, we are greeted by a large patio flooded with natural light. This double height patio filters the light through vertical slats and adds character to the house.
