The DublDom’s wooden frame is constructed inside a factory, then transported to the site via a flatbed truck. A giant crane places the house onto the land—whether it’s in the cold Russian countryside or in the south of France—and the finishing touches like furniture and appliances are installed on site. This method ensures the quality of work while also reducing the cost of the project. And for a factory-made house, the design looks wholly original.
Designed by Ivan Ovchinnikov of Bio architects, the DublDom’s frame is made of solid pine without any adhesives and features a glass panelled front wall. Beyond that, the DublDom is customizable: the roof and façade can be made of black graphite, various types of wood, or copper or zinc sheets. The entire home is insulated to ensure the it can suit a variety climates.
Inside, the home is all Scandinavian minimalism. The ceiling, floors, and walls are all made of a light-coloured wood, adding an airiness to the open-concept space. The kitchen table seats four comfortably and features a built-in storage unit for storing tabletop necessities like napkins and place mats. A sleeping nook with more built-in storage is tucked into a far corner. The kitchen utilizes wall space by installing shelves to store dishes.
Complete with electrical and water services, the DublDom can be used as a couple’s main home. Alternatively, it can be used as temporary housing while a family waits for the construction of their larger home. Once it’s built, the DublDom can be turned into a guesthouse.
The quaint bathroom features a tiled floor that reaches up the wall for a wrap-around backsplash. Although tiny in square-footage, the space is outfitted with a shower, sink, and a washing machine/dryer.
The home is built inside a factory warehouse in Russia. If a DublDom is not in stock when an order is placed, building one from scratch takes only six to 10 weeks. The DublDom is also built to last—the engineers behind it estimate the home's lifetime is at least 75-years.
