Modular Architecture Contest – ‘Design your modular home’ by inHAUS

January 24, 2023 - March 13, 2023


The IV inHAUS LAB ‘Design your modular home’ competition reaches its fourth edition. After three highly successful editions and with a very high level among the participants, the leading firm in the premium modular housing sector is once again launching a new challenge to architecture students and recent graduates.

The competition is open to:

All students enrolled in the 2022-23 academic year in Architecture or any other discipline related to the sector (Engineering, Design, Interior Design, Decoration…) at any university or college.
Recent graduates, who have completed their studies from 2018 onwards, whether they are studying Architecture or any other discipline related to the sector (engineering, design, interior design, decoration…) at an international level.

Participation may be individual or in the form of multidisciplinary teams. Each student may only be part of one team and each entrant or team may submit a maximum of two proposals, either as a group or individually.

The aim of the competition is to propose a modular concrete house that meets the specifications and provides a technical and formal response to the requirements set out in the competition rules.

A proposal will be considered a ‘ modular housing design’ when it has all the necessary comforts of a first residence. There is no limitation regarding the land. The designer will make the decision to locate the house on flat, uneven, stepped land… The housing program is equally free to not set limits and to encourage the creativity of the architect. One or two floors, with or without a garage… It should be taken into account the correct functionality of all rooms of the house in terms of positioning, orientation and distribution of the rooms… ensuring optimal functionality, harmony of the parts within the whole and the comfort of its future inhabitants. The built-up area must be 150 m2 or more, with at least one bedroom on the ground floor. The house will be formed of as many modules as necessary. The composition and relation of the modules to each other is free, that is to say, they can be placed adjacent, superimposed, in ladder, perpendicular… according to the requirements of the concept of the housing raised. The search for the dimension of the module must be free, adapting the module both to the needs of the home and to the criteria of transportation, assembly, and to the joining of modules together… It will be highly valued:
– Possible innovative contributions in design, quality, technology, manufacturing processes, etc. And, in general, everything that contributes to give an added value to the proposal presented.
– Optimization in production / transport / assembly costs.
– Possibility of production in a simple and viable way from all points of view.
– Versatility and opportunity of evolution from the initial design: auxiliary pieces of complementary uses, variations of sizes, adaptation to the changes of needs during its useful life.
– Bioclimatic improvements, energy saving and the use of natural resources.
