Curupira / Versatile Modular House


The Modular House Curupira was designed to be a popular eco-house, in regions of tropical and equatorial climate. It is intended to workers involved in considerable constructions, usually located outside cities and in sites with poor infrastructure. It works as a temporary dwelling, with a simple mounting process, easy storage and various conveyance possibilities. Furthermore, it provides solar energy production, water production system and natural climate adjustment.

Its modular capacity allows different shapes so it can function not only as lodging but also as other premises, such as offices, toilet or leisure site.
