XS IVALSA prototype

XS Ivalsa Prototype is a single prefabricated and transportable housing module designed by DUOPUU and Cnr-Ivalsa Wood building design lab. The module – 11 sqm floor area; m 2,40 X 5,50 base area; m 2,80 height – consists of a transformable living room with kitchen, bed and table as well as one bathroom: XS is a "sustainable wooden caravan" made of 90% renewable materials based on wood, without any toxic treatments. The prototype has been prefabricated in the Ivalsa labs in 5 days ready to be moved by truck to the final destination, in order to be quickly installed and used. Using this first XS prototype as a starting point, DUOPUU is developing an innovative construction system for X-Lam (cross laminated timber panels) modular buildings of different size by assembling a series of prefabricated wooden modules, built entirely in the factory, easily transportable and mountable to obtain the final building in a few steps and short construction phases.
