SIP Panel House by Alejandro Soffia and Gabriel Rudolphy

Chilean architects Alejandro Soffia and Gabriel Rudolphy designed this house in Santo Domingo as a cluster of prefabricated modules.


Each module is arranged at a perpendicular angle and some are stacked on top of one another, creating rooms with standard dimensions on two floors.

Named SIP Panel House, after the insulated structural panels that make up its walls, the house is clad with wood on only its north and south-facing elevations.



The largest windows are arranged across the western facade, which faces out towards the ocean. A series of small modular pathways and terraces slot into the corners around the house and are also covered with wooden panels, plus residents can climb up onto a wooden deck on the roof.
