Housing Technology That’s Affordable and Adaptable

Imagine a house that can be ‘built’ and furnished within six hours. Not only that but can be disassembled and be reassembled again. That is the amazing housing technology created by Italian architect Renato Vidal and is dubbed ‘M.A.DI’ which stands for ‘Modulo Abitativo Dispiegabile’ which roughly translates to ‘unfoldable housing module’ in Italian.

This foldable A-frame module is a versatile home, allowing for quick and easy assembly and deployment anywhere provided there is flat ground. Customers can make use of multiple modules to adjust the size of the overall house according to their needs. So a tiny home can be set up with a single module fit for a single resident or a pair which is about 290 square feet, up to the triple module setup which can be large enough to house an entire family which can be sized at about 753 to 904 square feet.

“M.A.DI gives you the opportunity to have a temporary house wherever you want or a permanent house in a building area. Moreover, according to your need and your financial availability you can customize it in dimensions and materials.” according to the company’s website.

Pricing ranges from $33,000 for the single module and up to $73,000 for a triple module. Other options include an additional module for $21,000 and a staircase for an extra $2700. Construction and delivery would take approximately 30 to 40 days from the date of order, with a unit price around $930 per square meter. It’s unclear as of yet whether the units are subject to building permits due to their temporary characteristics.
