invisible studio builds a prototype, relocatable house from construction waste materials and locally grown, unseasoned timber. ‘trailer’ comes with a removable, wheeled ‘bogey’ that allows it to be transported on any public highway, and slides out from under the steel chassis when not being moved. built on a budget of £20K, the house provides a very low cost, versatile space that offers a kit of parts for any self builder to improvise with or easily adapt.

invisible studio used scavenged materials for various parts of the house, including insulation, doors and lighting. externally, ‘trailer’ is clad in corrugated fiberglass and steel, while its interior is fitted with used shuttering ply and handrails made from blue rope offcuts. gable ends ‘glazed’ with high-performance, interlocking polycarbonate provide ample natural light. using ‘same section’ timber of 125 x 50 mm dimensions, laminated up into structural sections for the cross frames as required, the studio was able to make the milling much more economical.
