The Solarys Modular System

by Michele Leonardi architect © 1995; August 2005 reloaded

 

 

SOLARYS 

is conceived as minimal preassembled living units linked by a similar system to those of train carriages. Such standardized link allows interconnection between various symmetrical, asymmetrical spaces of different shapes and functions. This is possible by using special trucks, as shown in the images.

Each livingbox can also be partially or entirely preassembled before delivery at less cost and quicker than being built on site.

 

 

 

ANOTHER 

feature of Solarys is the formation, space, and constructive reticular system of “sandwich panels”, held by large metallic hinges. The number of units involved and shapes depends on the individual’s needs, so each “livingbox” can be of different size too. The first advantage of a modular system is that it can be built over time and, for example, starting just with an open kitchen plan, a bedroom, and a bathroom. Therefore, the next benefit for “first buyers” is a reduced initial budget. Instead of standard cubes, all spaces can be uniquely and geometrically shaped. And lastly, it is possible to relocate with the entire system or simply detach a single unit for extraordinary maintenance.

I PUBLISHED

my project first time in November 2005 on the "Livingbox" international competition for prefabricated houses. Then I submitted my project to many house prefabrication companies, however none of them ever answered me. But here below is the demonstration that my prefabrication house system was valid, that is my project is feasible, because recently the company M.A.D.I. has marketed a project of "M.A.D.I. HOME FLATPACK" by the Italian architect Renato Vidal, who demonstrates more generally that the folding system is valid and effective:
