Best Offsite Manufactured Home - Stommel Haus shortlisted for the Build It Award 2017
The beautiful house "Ashdown" was designed and manufactured 576 miles/929 km away in the Stommel Haus factory in Germany near Cologne, brought to site and assembled within one week. The fine tuning and kitting out took another 3.5 months.
The project demonstrates that it is possible …
The design of the house is tailored to the plot, the client’s requirements for space and the way they want to live in the house, the requirements of the local planning and conservation office and the client’s target budget.
The design and construction of the product is optimised for quick assembly on site. High precision made panels with windows and doors already installed are unloaded straight from the lorry to the slab, the house is assembled within 5 days with minimum impact on the neighbours. There is no cutting of timber required, almost no waste is created but a bit of wrapping material which is taken away and recycled. During the build process the building does not stand open to the weather.
