I've always wanted to live in an ulra-minimalist space
bamboo floor, all polished cement walls
so i learnt how to use AUTO-CAD, and I'm at the stage now where I think i could design pre-fab (made in pieces and assembled on site) houses like this at a ludicrously cheap price point
I work on a construction site every day with cement, cad is for fabrcating small parts but i use it to get measurements in shape on a macro scale, though there are better programs for it
the idea hinges on having the building intergrated with the furniture, so the cement already has holes drilled for fittings, and with an assembly that is slot and go.
the floor slab is poured with inserts for the walls, the walls slot into them and have holes and slots for internal features and the roof
the floor sits flush on the slab with some insulation, and the roof can be modular because the walls are predetermined dimensions
junior architects often fascinate over compact houses, but I would like large and spacious, favouring a raw unfinished look and very clean surfaces
Idk. I think that one house in like, fucking Peru or somewhere in South America, is the only prefab that I have saved. I'm thinking of another prefab, but I believe it's all wood, and I want to say it was just something I saw on TV or in a magazine, so I don't have pics saved.
Going to contrib before i look at rest of thread so if any are dupes dont be salty (this kills the snails)
I only posted build pics of the same house, so it's highly unlikely you have dupes
my folder is on an external downstairs i just realised so this is pretty much it for me contributing anyway
thanks for playing
Not really minimalism, but I love the huge open-air feel, so I'll post it anyway
>so i learnt how to use AUTO-CAD, and I'm at the stage now where I think i could design pre-fab (made in pieces and assembled on site) houses like this at a ludicrously cheap price point
no you can't. also, are you in high school? that's when i learned how to use auto cad
I feel like with cement there's potential for building the furniture into the house itself. It'd be kinda of a fusion between the Arts & Crafts movement, Brutalism, and Japanese inspired minimalism. You could have built in shelves and benches, which you could put cushions on later.
Anyway, look up George Suyama to see good examples of modern materials like cement fused with natural materials and surroundings. He's my favorite architect.
