Hex House

The Hex House is the brainchild of Minnesota-based Architects for Society. It is a 431-square-foot (40-square-metre) unit is largely made of steel-and-foam Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) made to be used for a rapidly deployable dwelling that could house victims of catastrophic events or refugees. Each Hex House unit contains two bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room, and a small porch. Designed to be self-supporting, the walls and roof panels are locked together using tongue and groove joints and form a sturdy structural shell. All exterior wall panels measure approximately 10 by 13 feet.  The walls are affixed to a hexagonal steel frame. The height-adjustable supports are anchored to concrete pier foundations. Units can be combined to form larger homes. The estimated cost for each unit is between $15,000 and $20,000. "The simple construction method of the Hex House facilitates full assembly by the inhabitants, using simple tools and a little training," the organization said.
