Bogusław Barnaś’s BXB studio designed a system of modular wooden houses for the company FIBOHOME. Individual modules can be freely configured, creating different typologies of objects.
Houses made of prefabricated wooden technology are gaining popularity in Poland. Construction takes much shorter time and by producing individual elements under fully controlled conditions in a production facility, most problems related to manufacturing defects are eliminated. Bogusław Barnas’ BXB studio has recently developed a system of modular wooden houses for FIBOHOME. Key to our project was the ability to deliver a product made with the utmost respect for the environment, with minimal environmental impact – says Bogusław Barnaś.
The individual modules are designed using KVH construction timber and CLT cross-laminated timber. Three types of modules were created: basic, cubic, usable attic module, and unused attic. They all have similar dimensions, allowing road transport without special permits (from 2.5 to 3 m wide and up to 12 m long). Modules can be freely configured to create different architectural objects. So far we have developed five variants, each in multiple color variants. There are plans to prepare more – explains Barnaś.
1. A one-storey house with two modules with an offset
House with a construction area of 35 m², composed of two modules: a social module and a residential module, juxtaposed with an offset.
2. Two-module, one-storey house
House with a constructed area of 35 m², composed of two modules: a social module and a residential module, placed side by side. Usable area approx. 28 m².
3. A house with a five-module attic
A house with a construction area of 35 m², consisting of two modules on the ground floor: a social module and a residential module, placed side by side, and three modules on the first floor: an open floor above the mezzanine, a staircase in the central part and a social module.
4. A house with four modules and one floor
A house with a construction area of 70 m², composed of four modules placed side by side in a larger rectangle with the same side proportions as a single module.
5. A one-story house and an attic with ten modules
A house with a built area of 70 m², composed of four modules on the ground floor arranged side by side in a larger rectangle with the proportions of the sides identical to a single module, and six floor modules, three empty above the living room with two levels and three complete with the master bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.
