Strikingly thin and magnificently modern, the SIP Panel House is like the supermodel of homes everywhere. While its aesthetic may have people captivated, the story behind its assembly is much more interesting. Erected in just 10 short days, it was built with little to no waste. Using two types of panels, the architectural project is comprised of 71 wall panels and 40 split-level panels.

Designed by architects Alejandro Soffia and Gabriel Rudolphy, the SIP Panel House can be found in Santo Domingo, Chile. Like a horizontal deck, wooden panels cover the side of the SIP Panel House while the front is all black, adding a nice contrasting detail. The key feature of this home, however, are the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the ocean.
