Pi Home: A New Aluminum Technology of A Prefabricated House

Designed by Taller Aragones / Miguel Angel Aragones in 2021, Pi Home is a prefabricated house like no other. A new aluminum technology is patented by Aragones for this house to maximize energy efficiency and support large glass spans.

This project is a prefabricated intelligence, breaking the paradigm of housing and transforming itself into a habitable place. It is a modern house where art, science, technology, and technique are within reach of the people.

The challenges of this project are better results, lower cost, and higher quality. The final result is a prefabricated house like no other.

Aluminum is the main material chosen for this project due to its ability that can do what other building materials cannot. This material is recyclable, corrosion-resistant, durable, lightweight, and strong.

There are five solid bases offered by this prefabricated house: high quality, high acoustic performance, small construction waste, ultra-fast construction speed, and low-cost construction.

The house’s structure works well horizontally, vertically, or mixed. Additional pieces are also added to integrate the final configuration.

With such as modular construction system, this project can optimize resources, reduce waste, and offer some great advantages.

The first advantage is ultralight. There is no problem with its assembly. Most parts’ average weight of this house is less than 78 kg so it is easy for two people to handle without using any heavy machines.

The second is adjustable. This house is expandable-reducible, offering modular construction advantages and the possibility of designing spaces that can be adjusted easily.

The third advantage is innovative. The walls of this house can cover the thermal and acoustic insulation layers. There are also electrical and hydraulic installations designed with screwed and plug-in connectors, offering easy work without complicated connections.

The fourth is low maintenance. It is a house that can guarantee the highest construction quality and provide some benefits: no need for waterproofing, painting, or corrosion protection.

The last advantage is integral quality. An adaptation of a thermal-acoustic system is used to reduce energy consumption, achieving a maximum comfort level whether using a central air conditioning system or not.
