We created a house that’s quick and easy to assemble in a matter of days
Scalable Modular Design
510 SF (47 SM) hexagonal plans can be combined into various combinations of clusters creating outdoor courtyards, green spaces and covered porches. Units can be easily joined into multifamily arrangements or combined to form larger units.
The wall, floor and roof panels are designed to be self-supporting and joined form a rigid structural shell without the need of added structure. A single 510 SF unit takes five people 5-8 days to be weather tight, using simple tools.
Small footprint, passive cooling, solar panels, rainwater harvesting, biogas / composting toilets make this a great off-grid solution. Features can be implemented according to location and available infrastructure.
We customize the house’s thermal insulation according to geographic location. The homes can withstand the coldest to the warmest climates on earth.
A Rapidly Deployable, Sustainable Structure
The Hex House is a revolutionary system by which high end design of sustainable buildings is made economically and physically accessible to the general public. By streamlining the construction processes to its bare essentials, and allowing the end-users to be part of the process using well designed, prefabricated elements, a quality structure can be realized at a substantial cost savings.
The Hex House is conceived as a sustainable, rapidly deployable structure based on Structural Insulated Panel technology which can be shipped flat-pack and easily assembled. It has the flexibility to be both a permanent or temporary structure.
The structure’s ability be easily modified with minimal disruption gives families the capacity to expand their space over time. Sustainable features like solar panels, passive cooling, rainwater harvesting and composting & biogas toilets give families more independence, minimizes their carbon footprint and add operational savings.
The inherent structural stability of the hexagonal form and the rigid construction of Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) preclude the use of added structural support. The wall and roof panels are designed to be self-supporting and form a rigid structural shell. The basic building components are glue laminated beams (or aluminum) for the base, Structural Insulated Panel for walls, floor and roof which can be customized with various insulation values depending on geography.

Hex House in the Media
“… a small hexagon-shaped, rapidly deployable and easy-to-build dwelling …”
“… the 47-square-metre modular unit is largely made of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), which can be flat-packed and delivered by truck to a building site.”
“… Hex House is a brilliant affordable shelter that can be rapidly deployed to provide a dignified, comfortable space that feels anything but temporary.”
“… a hexagon-shaped dwelling that includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, a porch, a kitchen, and common areas.”
“made with inexpensive building materials easily found … modifiable, allowing families of various sizes to join rooms as they see fit”
“off-the-grid house, suitable for long stays.”
“can be clustered together to form multi-unit residences or facilities”
