Casa Invisible is a concept by Austrian firm, Delugan Meissl Associated Architects (DMAA), which utilizes the idea of mobile housing to create a cost efficient, environmentally conscience design. The nature of the design’s mobility leaves a minimal environmental footprint, reducing structural planning restrictions and addressing the critical housing situation.
The flexibility of the prefabricated units allows for easy assembly and the ability of the structure to be completely disassembled and relocated.
With a relatively “simple,” but striking design, the homes utilize a wooden frame. Domestic timber is also seen throughout the interior of the project as well, creating warmth for the design’s three designated spaces for sleeping, living and utility space.
Casa Invisible’s name comes from the use of a mirrored exterior cladding material that allows the home to blend in seamlessly to any environment. The mirrored aluminum was chosen for its lightweight and durability, as all the materials must be prefabricated and mobile.
The design of the homes is completely customizable, with the architect’s allowing flexibility for materials used on both the interior and exterior, creating a fluctuating price point for clients. The mixture of innovative design and environmentally conscience building materials destigmatizes mobile housing, creating the homes of the future.
