Flexible Residential Development in Austria – design by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects

Casa Invisibile in Austria
Casa Invisibile is a flexible housing unit, which consists of a prefabricated wood structure designed for turnkey implementation at any designated site.
Maximum flexibility and spatial quality are the key elements in its concept of development. 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 ambience of the rooms are characterised 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 overall dimensions are 14.50 x 3.50 meters, which provides for easy transportation by lorry.
Design and texture of the interior design and façade can be determined by the client from various options listed in a design catalogue. This provides for tailor-made design options for the housing units as well as for flexible pricing options. Through modular element construction and the inten¬sive use of wood, the housing units can be completely disassembled thus minimizing their environmental footprint.
By combining innovation and mobility at a reasonable price, Casa Invisibile is a product that offers a ground breaking alternative in an increasingly critical housing situation. Key factors in this unique proposition are its uncomplicated assembly, its attractive price and the free choice of location. Compared to the cost-inten¬sive and bureaucratic construction of a conventional house, these represent the main assets of Casa Invisible.
