This is us

  • We are a start-up developing a modular system for the construction of inexpensive yet high-quality buildings.
  • Our flexible, variable architecture, can be adapted for different sizes, shapes and uses, accommodating local climate, culture, tradition and individual taste.
  • Our mission is not to export "Houses made in Germany", but to create local jobs by sourcing ans manufacturing locally.
