The Argentinian architect- company, Grandio, has unveiled Hüga, a relocatable concrete house that is 'indestructible' and can survive in all climates.
Though the thought of traveling to faraway lands may seem like a distant dream at present, the Córdoba-based company has revealed a fully designed and ready-to-move modern home that can be placed wherever you choose.
At only 45m2 (3,90 x 3,90 x 11m), Hüga has one bedroom, a living-dining room, a 'zoned' bathroom, and a mezzanine. All of which are surprisingly chic for a prefabricated 'indestructible house.
The house is also very versatile, it can be extended to include two more bedroom or a larger living room by adding an additional unit.
Alongside its versatility, Hüga's greatest asset is, perhaps, its large panoramic windows that drench the property in natural daylight and frame the outdoor setting, wherever that may be.
Grandio (opens in new tab) has recently revealed plans to expand Hüga to North America and Europe after they established partnerships with a US-based precast concrete producer who will supply the home more readily across the globe. Grandio shared that once the house is produced, it can be transported and installed in the desired location in one day, 'without the need for the foundation.'
Even without this foundation, however, Grandio has revealed the tiny home is 'indestructible.' 'It can be placed on the mountains; it will resist Quebec's snowfalls and tornados of Florida or humidity of Louisiana. It can even be buried,' they claim.
'Hüga was designed considering all kinds of environmental conditions such as those we find in the Andes in the Argentinian Patagonia, a mountain chain shared by Argentina and Chile with a cold, dry climate and powerful winds as well as in a very humid environment, such as Florida,' they added.
Hüga was first theorized by two architects and two engineers who work for Grandio whilst also teaching at the local university. The tutors observed their students' craving for travel and to live wherever they desire.
