24 Days Of Christmas Crushes – 5 Days to Go! – Archiblox
Have you ever watched one of those lifestyle channel shows about tiny houses, and honestly thought about holding the garage sale to end all garage sales, condensing your life into your most valued and loved possessions, and starting again?
Buzz sentence; “Prefabricated modular architecture”.
What does it mean?
Essentially, ‘prefabricated modular architecture’ is smart builds with quick turnarounds and sustainable souls that drain as few resources as possible.
Introducing Archiblox – part of a wave of architects, designers and regular people who are eschewing modern consumerism for more of a ‘simple life’ – in the most fabulously designed homes, of course!
They might hate us saying this, but it’s like Ikea for houses. Their designs have a distinctly minimalistic, raw material Scandy feel that works so well in Australia – as long as they get the cooling right! As we well know, when it comes to Australian design, creating fluidity between outdoor and indoor spaces is imperative.
Archibox create and custom design pre-fabricated, compact homes that have no wasted spaces or materials. They actually build the houses on their own site, before installing them on yours. Cutting shapes is no longer exclusively for the kids!
We love Archiblox’s vibe because they show that you can be smart and stylish and totally unique without breaking the bank, or destroying your environment. Everything they create has a soul, and is made by a team that the client gets to feel a part of as much as the architect and the crew out on site. A scroll of their feed doesn’t reveal the same design placed in different settings – they’ve created a wide range of smart builds that can be fully customised for humans as original as yourself.
Archiblox stand in the face of those who spend two years on a building project, and instead turn around their modular homes in a manner of a couple of months from start to finish. They’re not cutting corners, either – they’re just smart – and your hip pocket and the environment benefit from their commitment to creating a more sustainable housing situation for anyone game enough to try.
This is seriously cool stuff!
