Argentina: Prefabricated mini-house 'Huga' offers mobile living alternative in times of COVID

A mini-cottage called 'Huga,' a prefabricated house of 42 square metres with a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room, was filmed in Cordoba, Monday. It's a mobile home and can be moved from one location to another, allowing owners to choose the place where they want to stay.

Architect and designer of the project Jose Martin Grandio, explained that the house "is made of reinforced concrete, so it is an anti-seismic structure, it is hurricane-proof, bullet-proof, it behaves very, very well thermally, it can be suitable for tropical areas or high mountain areas, or [areas with] snow."

The price starts at $64,000 (52,700 euros). The house has been designed as a modular home so that it can be expanded depending on the needs of its owner.

According to Grandio, "the pandemic has greatly increased the number of inquiries because people who live in agglomerations, or in large buildings where there are 200 or 300 families, are looking for alternatives to move to places further away from the city."
