SET Ideas: The challenge of a modular and standardized architecture: “For us, everything that we are experiencing from the pandemic is a signal to start living in a different way and reaffirm our idea, trends had accelerated and thus, the lifestyle that we propose ”They comment from the studio located in Villa Allende.

And what is that idea? Simplify the processes of architecture making it more efficient, practical and in less time. These are spaces conceived in a modular way, whose dimensions arise from the materials found on the market. “The main element due to its speed and ease of work is metal. As the pipes are 6mts, our modules are sized from their multiples: 3x4, 4x6, 3x8, 4x12 ... ”The modules are an alternative capable of adapting to any context and with the virtue of facilitating processes, reducing assembly and construction costs.

“We believe that this is the ideal time to break with a lot of paradigms, from the materials to build, the way of living with nature and even the time of construction: SET innovates in the way of working with architecture from day 0.

We have already installed more than 12 modules with various functions: country houses, offices, studios, bedrooms, barbecue facilities and simply a “plus” space. The versatility of the format allows customization and functionality according to each client.

This architecture is in synthesis for us as architects and for our clients, a way to simplify and harmonize each stage we go through.
