Meet Portable Home ÁPH80, an unfussy, uncluttered, and rather lovely prefabricated hideaway from Spain that, as its name implies, can easily go wherever you need it to go … provided that you have a flatbed truck, a crane, and a full day to assemble the entire thing. Also, a super-photogenic field in the Spanish countryside complete with a roving herd of goats wouldn’t hurt.
Somewhat of a departure for award-winning Madrid-based sustainable architecture firm Ábaton (I previously featured a stunning adaptive reuse project from the firm in the form off an grid cow stable-turned-family retreat in the rural Cáceres province), this one-bedroom dwelling has been making the rounds the past few days and for good reason: Compact (with a footprint of only 290 square feet, I suppose it qualifies for "micro" status) and visually striking (the timber frame is clad in wood fiber cement board), ÁPH80 is a careful exercise in balance and restraint, designed to project an overall sense of “wellbeing, environmental balance, and simplicity.”
