MOBACO-A: Flexible homes / Self-building system

MOBACO-A: Flexible homes
MOBACO-A: Flexible homes

MoBaCo-A is Modular, Biobased, Constructing. It is a social, sustainable, self-sufficient, self-building system that creates a 'home' with its own living identity, and puts the user’s needs first. By (re)use of local (raw) materials for the façades, the housing units easily adapt to all kinds of environments. Depending on the situation, a choice can be made between individual and group homes, on an open site, between buildings, on a flat roof, or in an existing building.
