Prototypes for steel construction houses
A generic design of several house models for a steel construction firm in Israel. Fairly new in Israel, the structural steel system allows a faster building process, but relies on an imported building material that has to be precision cut in the factory – and the shipped and imported to the country .
All models share the same structural system. In order to simplify construction reduce building costs, all models share the same spans. This allows for more flexibility in importing “generic” building elements that would fit a number of house models.
