Butterpaper is happy to publish for discussion architects’ work related to bushfire reconstruction. The first is from Melbourne practice 1:1 Architects, a director of which lives in Kinglake West.
1:1 Architects Pty Ltd
“As architects we wanted to help out in some way with the re-building process of fire destroyed homes in Victoria. After several days of discussion and design amongst the office we attach our design for the HOUSE REGROWTH Pod.
It is a permanent and cost effective housing unit which can assist in the rebuilding of the fire devastated town-ships of Victoria.
The robust pre-fabricated concrete structure has been designed to be built upon, but in the short term acts as a habitable starting point for the building of a new home.
The units can be prefabricated, delivered and connected to services rapidly allowing families to begin the process of re-building without displacement from their communities.
The House Pod is not just relief housing it is a starting block for the re-growth of regional Victoria. We have built a number of projects using concrete prefabrication technology and further information can be found on our website.
We have already spoken with the fabricator of the concrete modules , Ecotec Build solutions who have generously offered to construct a prototype.”
