Rhizom consists of a set of prefabricated elements that can be easily assembled without the need for a construction site. Once assembled, thanks to their modularity, the small to larger residential units, offices or common spaces can be disassembled into their individual components and reassembled in another location. The units can be configured as desired and according to needs and financial resources. Prefabrication, which has established itself as an advantageous construction method in recent years, also enables efficient transport logistics and fast and precise assembly and disassembly. Rhizom ties in formally and constructively with the German tradition of half-timbered houses and offers a flexible, cost-effective and adaptable solution to counteract the ever-increasing housing shortage, especially in the Berlin-Brandenburg area.
