ZEST Architecture is known for integrating sustainability and Passive design in all its projects. Given the growing demand for more affordable, bespoke housing situated in a wide variety of locations and with a reduced construction time, and given the continuous changes in recent decades in construction systems and in the climate itself, ZEST believed it necessary to create a housing prototype that, without renouncing the highest quality standards, could be Passive House, prefabricated and additionally be adaptable to any terrain. On these premises our Z1 House was born, a home designed to the smallest detail and with options to adapt finishes, distribution and size.
Each family has different needs and the uses for individual spaces in the home have become increasingly varied, especially since COVID-19 and the consequent change in lifestyle. For this reason we have developed different size versions of the same prototype. Currently we have designed the Z1-M and the Z1-L and are in the process of designing the third smallest version, the Z1-S.
The Z1 House is a real architectural project, with construction systems available on the market for which the detailed cost has been calculated, with no margin for error.
