Bali – Architect Alexis Dornier has developed a concept for modular, elevated housing that can be assembled and reassembled in different locations.
Stilt Studios, which are prefabricated homes on stilts, have been designed to have minimal impact on the land they occupy. Because they are elevated, the multi-level structures can be erected on sites with awkward shapes or difficult, uneven terrain.
Dornier’s high-end concept is customisable and scalable, with a variety of possible alterations and sizes. Following the principles of a circular economy, Stilt Studios are made to reuse and recycle products and materials for as long as possible, eliminating waste. Other sustainable features include large overhangs that are designed to minimise solar heat and harvest rainwater. Dornier also envisages that the space beneath the buildings could, in some cases, be used to grow food.
