Its Design Is Inspired By Constantino Nivola’s “la Madre”
What may look like a work of art on the outside is actually a series of prefabricated homes on the inside. Designed to be developed in Sardinia, Italy, these modular houses will make up a small village whose structure is inspired by Constantino Nivola’s “La Madre.” More than that, however, is the way these prefab structures will be built. Instead of the usual concrete or wood, these houses will make use of steel with a 3-D printed design.
The result would be a series of fully functional houses. The houses will be made up of three levels supported by a central hollow column with branches to support each floor. The houses are all heart-shaped and white in design, taking notes from the shape of Nivola’s sculpture. If these things aren’t enough to impress, these houses will also be self-sustainable, having a central “Energy Tower” that will provide electricity from solar and wind sources and an expandable and flexible structure to suit any terrain.
Then, on each floor, a perimeter frame “divides and supports the [home’s] facades made up of panels modeled to follow the organic shape of the house,” as described by Mask Architects.
