A new modular kit home challenges the concept of permanence in house design.
September 18th, 2008
TS1 – Transportable/Transformation Space 1 – is a modular kit home designed by Plus Create that is comprised of just 21 separate components.
Prefabricated panels, louvres and roofing systems are attached to a support structure, and the kit, which arrives flat packed, can be assembled by two people within a day without the help of lifting equipment or tradespeople. While it is a standalone structure, the TS1 can be interconnected to other TS1s to create a variety of unique buildings.
The TS1’s design was influenced by early modernist architecture, such as Joe Colombo’s ‘Kitchen-Box’ and Allan Wexler’s ‘Vinyl Milford House’ as well as by a desire to minimise environmental impact.
Its portability challenges the notion that structures need to be permanently linked to spaces making suitable for festivals or gallery showcases as well as domestic spaces.
Previously only available for hire, the TS1 is now available to purchase.
