The Tetris House project aims to create maximum flexibility for developers building housing units. Elements can rotate of find their optimal position within specific configurations. Steel modular structure and Meccano-like facade allow the residents to add more space to their living spaces. Thanks to its versatility, the project can be licensed to developers who are looking to give their future residents the power of choice.

The studio plans to realize the first project based on the Tetris House inthe Netherlands. For this project, Dutch firm i29 joined the team as interior designers and have created designs which combine spatial efficiency and luxury. Universe Architecture are currently looking to expand production to different countries.

It's really unbelievable how good this house looks and to think it's modular, hard to believe. I saw photos of US companies and their entire portfolio was filled with containers and trailers, which isn't really a modular house. They resembled like mobile houses to me. I'd like to pitch in with a little something on my accord about what modular houses really are. https://www.fantastichandyman.co.uk/blog/what-is-modular-housing/
Modules are a compromised definition of modularity. Le Corbusier explicitly used the golden ratio in his Modular system for the scale of architectural proportion. He saw this system as a continuation of the long tradition of Vitruvius, Leonardo da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man", the work of Leon Battista Alberti, and others who used the proportions of the human body to improve the appearance and function of architecture. In addition to the golden ratio, Le Corbusier based the system on human measurements, Fibonacci numbers, and the double unit. The Corbusier compromise was in limiting dimension to the double unit, aka 4x8 sheet goods and the universal brick, both of which can be utilized while thicknesses are neglected, and both maximally utilize 2D as a ratio 1:2 The interest in modularity has a modern interpretation remade possible today thanks to composite materials and building products that include thickness to the length and width of prior approaches now achieve a 3D modularity. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.419059461504139.97482.100002002650029&type=1&l=ebfc60c114 shebuild.ca
