Modular and inexpensive construction of dwellings offers a solution to the lack of apartments and gives answers to the wish for living in one-family-houses. These modular houses should represent a better way of living. A modular house is closer to the way of the industrial production than to the traditional buildings. This project proposes new dwellings that fit the needs of different life-styles and considers the changeable dwelling necessity. Flexible dwelling is a reasonably priced, elastic and adaptable living hull, which can be used in all stages of the family growth. This new system is made up of basic modular units that can be composed in different ways according to the needs. Each unit can be enlarged: from a one-room apartment into a two-room, or a three-room, also adding a new workshop or an outbuilding. In this way the system is suitable for different users. It is possible to compose the system with additional elements in the horizontal or vertical direction.
