International CECC Design Competition: Islero

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formArchitectureArt in coproductionpeer-review


Islero is a spatial and structural system for prefabricated holiday homes or pavillions.
Islero is made of prefabricated spatial modules. The modules have steel structure and its covering surfaces can be customised with alternative materials. The geometry of the module is always the same, but it allows numerous combinations with other modules, creating a spatially diverse experience for the user.

Prefabricated construction is sustainable, because it allows more efficient construction methods, flexibility in use and reasonable costs and prices. Another sustainable feature is the fast and easy installation. The usage of recycled materials and wood underlines the sustainability of the project.
Essential in prefabrication is the easiness to order and assemble. It enables a possibility for different lifestyles with different combinations of spatial modules. Maintaining and changing of the configuration is effortless since the building consist of removable pieces.
The dimensions of panels are practical for the builder to make installations and changes by itself.
The system consists also of prefabricated terrace and plantation units.
