Bjarke Ingels Launches Modular Home Design Company
The named company Nabr will seek to rethink the way housing is designed and developed.
âOur homes have become more and more expensive, and arguably less and less in quality,â says Ingels.
âThere is very little to choose from. Ninety-nine percent of all homes are the same, but all people are actually different. There is huge potential to reinvent this whole process, end to end. “
The company will offer residents the opportunity to co-design spaces to suit their needs and develop buildings made from a series of modular elements that can be mass-produced and then assembled to create a variety of homes.
âWe could adopt modularity as a force to maximize diversity,â he continued. âWe could create a system that can adapt to people and their environment, not the other way around. So when you walk into a neighborhood, you don’t just walk into a house, you walk into your house, âhe says.
âBy re-imagining the way we build our homes and the way we build our cities, we can make healthy living the norm not only for individual residents, but also for communities and ultimately for the entire planet,â said Ingels
