House of the Future – The Prefab Revolution

How Coronavirus and Climate Change Will Affect the Design and Construction Trend of Prefabricated Homes

The consecutive ecological disasters that are taking place in our planet, have already affected our daily lives, but they have also brought to the fore the essence of well-being. For the first time, we saw the introduction of sustainable materials in the construction industry, minimal interiors and more places in the house that are designed to offer comfort to residents.

How the pandemic affects the trend in Housing design

But the pandemic came to strengthen the need of people for greater autonomy and flexibility in their residence and personal space. In the past, the house was a place of storage and sleep. It is now an abode in which everything will take place – from teaching and sports to socialization. Whether the pandemic will weaken, the new trend has come to stay.

According to Alex Begeard, director of the Lanserring furniture company, the virus has accelerated three forces that designers and architects of future houses have already identified as: a social “revolution” as we grow older and more isolated, a technological ” revolution “, as we seek to control and automate our homes and an environmental” revolution”, as we tend to create energy-efficient houses – with some being able to generate, store and distribute their own electricity and are protected from floods and rising temperatures due to global warming.

Prefabricated Homes are the future

All these changes can not leave the prefabricated housing industry unaffected. The design and construction of prefabricated tend to build energy-efficient and efficient houses with a simple framework structure, emphasis on detail, quality and of course cost control. Housing will become even more versatile, which will force the prefabricated housing industry to revolutionize flexible design and implementation.

The house of the future

The house of the future will innovate in providing efficient and healthy green homes for all. Both the ecological crisis and the pandemic helped us realize that our home is not just a place to sleep but our personal shelter.
