From the Austrian countryside, the hills are alive, with the sound of…. prefab! Salzburg-based Espace Mobile has recently debuted their very eye-catching, very affordable prefabricated line of customizable homes, ranging from €55,000 to €95,000. The concept behind Espace is the individual “at home” in a natural environment, designed for modular customization with the best materials for long lifetimes and flexibility.

The Espace home is as customizable as your next automobile purchase, allowing you to pick and choose from a variety of features- everything from size and configuration to roofing, balcony, and interior material options. The structure is also optimized for energy conservation and heat retention (and comes with a 3-year warranty!). Sizes are a standard 4 meters wide, ranging from 7 to 15 meters long. Now if only we owned an acre or two in the uber-green Austrian countryside!

    Hi, I have a question. Why do you need the concrete stilts ? Are theses a prerequsite or can you have your house without or at your own desired height or not at all?

    how much would be it to ship or would it be more feasible to design your own?

    They have done a very attractive job with both the unit and the location. However, we need homes of similar size, but at more economical prices. Our concern is providing housing for needy low income people. I would like tro see more designers come forward with lower cost ideas. There is also still the concern of finding space to put these homes.

    The Dwell and Flatpak homes are very cool, but they’re really expensive, as you note. I have to wonder whether certain modular, and prefabricated components (walls, roofs, etc.) would be more cost effective to fabricate off site and assemble on site.

    There is plenty of prefab architecture here in the states, they’re called mobile homes. For something more modern, check out some of the “dwell homes,” one example being the “flatpak” house by Charles Lazor of BluDot. Has the Loblolly house made it on Inhabitat yet? It was featured in a book called “Refabricating Architecture.” A good enough read. I love how it is a racheted snap together frame. Still pricey compared to traditional construction though. But a great project. When will this stuff be cheap though?

    That might work in the US were it available in a double wide.

    The problem though might be to transport the darn thing here on our shores,i might ended up being just as expensive as our stuff but it is definitely nice.It remind me of the Tracy’s home in the old THUNDERBIRDS British tv series.

    I love love love prefabs. It doesn’t seem as common in the States but I’m dying to get one. I’m wondering about buying land and zoning info. Pics are great. good work!

    Nice,

    Hey there, thanks for the link back. By the way, love your work in the summer read of Innovative Home.

    Is it a prerequisite for pre-fabs to be furnished with modern furniture and accesories? I’d like to see this outfitted with faux bearskin rugs, velvet smoking chairs, and deep rich colors. That would be a nice change. The layout is great though, good stuff!

    NIce! I’m a sucker for glass walls. Do they ship to the states?
