Santiago-based architect Alejandro Soffia experiments with prefabricated house designs, highlighting the versatility of this mode of architecture. He draws his point across through the development of a cheerfully accented woodland residence in Pucón, Chile. Appropriately dubbed 'Yellow House,' the structure is reliant on a module that was designed by Soffia himself.
The architect shares that the idea is to produce good design for a prefabricated module that can be applied consistently, over and over until the expectations of the design brief are met. This prefabricated house design is what Alejandro Soffia used to realize the Yellow House which boasts "a kitchen, dining and living rooms, a library, as well as bedrooms and bathrooms." The prefab units are seamlessly conjoined.
