Bern: Weberhaus (Bauart Architekten)

A prefabricated modular house option. This was a quick introduction into the extraordinary standards or craft and excellence within the Swiss built environment. This particular unit had three modules. The spaces were really nice, large windows (very common) and variation within each module. It was cheap and had to be erected quickly (within 6 months). The owner complained that it was cheap (built by the Germans) and only really made to last 20-30 years, like most of the houses in the US…..overall nice project, but very difficult to do much with it in the future. It is a mobile and versatile project until it is actually built, then it is finished…
