We’ve all heard of modular kitchens, furniture and even pop-up tents that can be zipped up into larger spaces. As part of their latest project, the team at Netherlands-based Universe Architecture has brought the convenience of modular designs to the time-consuming process of home construction. The Tretris House, as its name suggests, is an incredibly innovative dwelling, built by stacking multiple housing units like Tretris blocks.
According to architect Janjaap Ruijssenaars, the ingenious project provides flexibility to developers, allowing them to easily modify a building’s configuration by adding extra housing blocks and other elements, including shutters and balconies. Each of these modular structures features a strengthened steel frame, with stunning Meccano-like facade giving residents the option of seamlessly expanding their living spaces.
What’s more, enormous floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors offer spectacular 360-degree-view of the surrounding area, while also ensuring the optimal availability of natural lighting. As pointed out by the team, the brilliant design can be licensed to individual developers looking to construct dwellings similar to the Tetris-shaped home.
The team at Universe Architecture is currently working alongside Dutch interior design firm i29 to erect the first Tetris House in Netherlands. If everything goes according to plan, the modular home concept will soon make its way to different countries across the globe.
