A product of the Bike Arc, the House Arc is a modular off-the-grid housing solution that represents a new model for compact living. Born from a modular system of bent steel tubes, the House Arc was created as an environmentally sensitive and affordable method of housing people in a beautiful, functional, and adaptive way.
Designed to be flat-packed and shipped in a 4' x 10' x 3' box, the House Arc is easily assembled on site. Upon assembly, the House Arc becomes a curvaceous 150 square feet and weighs just 3,000 pounds because of its lightweight frame constructed of steel tubes. The House Arc can withstand tropical winds and weather and also features a roof designed to support solar energy-generation. Architect Joseph Bellomo says of the House Arc, “We designed it to be a kit of parts house that can be assembled quickly–like prefab furniture.” The modest and easy-to-construct House Arc was conceived to function as both emergency shelters for communities in need and as an attractive solution for individuals interested in backyard home expansion.
