Design Specifications

The building has a rigid core of concrete blocks, while its surrounding rooms are made up of modules of more lightweight materials such as wooden pallets.This system of not finishing everything with strong materials, and sometimes using an industrial palette, allows for more space with much less money. This also allows the design to be easily adapted into different layouts. It also allows for a bigger floor plan than most social housing units, which typically have an area of 43 m2 – the minimum federal requirement, so all of the existing models are43 m2. In its first phase, Bilbao's house includes two bedrooms, one bathroom, one kitchen and a five-meter-high living and dining space. Up to five additional bedrooms can be added at a later stage.
