'house arc' is a modular, prefab housing system developed by palo alto, california-based bellomo architects.
designed to be 100% off the grid, the 150-square-foot unit can be flat-packed and shipped in a box that is 4x10x3 feet in size.
considered a model for compact living, the structure's curvaceous shape is formed from a lightweight frame made of steel tubes -
when complete it weighs only 3000 pounds. the intention of 'house arc' is to aid people located in areas devastated by
natural disasters and other unforeseen events, as a means of replacing residences that were not built to withstand certain forces of nature.
hence, it has been constructed to withstand tropical winds and weather.
the capsule-like dwelling features a solar energy generating roof. large windows allow natural light to flood through the space,
while also funneling air through the interior, creating a cross-breeze, while a shading trellis limits heat infiltration.
the raised structure permits air to flow beneath the framework for cooling, while maintaining permeability of the site.
'we designed it to be a kit of parts that the average person can assemble quickly–like an IKEA house, only easier to put together.'
