Spanish Studio MYCC has recently completed a cool prefab summerhouse in Spain. Located in Tragacete, this modular home is far from your average prefabricated dwelling. Simple and compact, JP House has an iron structure completely covered with vertical larch sticks that allow the breeze to flow freely in and out while protecting the interiors from excessive Mediterranean sunlight.
JP House stands on a hill overlooking Tragacete, a municipality famous for a rich mimbre (wicker) culture and crafts. This dried plant industry was extremely important for the area’s development, so MYCC created the house’s vertical sticks skin (in part) as homage to the sturdy grass. The locally-sourced larch walls give the prefab home a unique and beautiful aesthetic, allowing crossed ventilation and filtering the strong Spanish rays.
JP House was built from eight modules of 194 square foot along two floors. Its wide and airy interiors receive plenty of natural light throughout the year. It was built off-site and completed in only five days, matching Tragacete´s terracotta roofs while being completely modern and simple.
