When Michaela Maresch and Gerald Brencic founded COMMOD HOUSE in 2011, they were keen to close the gap between unaffordable architecturally designed houses and the lack of design and quality on the prefabricated house market in ecological construction. They wanted to use their product to counter the increasing trend toward more insulation thickness without regard to the use of insulation materials. The initial duo has grown continuously and sustainably over the past decade and can rely on a solid, professional, and established core team with a lot of know-how.
COMMOD HOUSE has always made it a priority to involve its clients in the entire planning process and, thanks to this way of thinking, the company can look back on long-standing and appreciative client relationships. The floor plan design is individual and, together with the future homeowners, the design team develops unique architectural structures that become cosy homes for many satisfied generations of COMMOD HOUSE customers.
COMMOD HOUSE® is the first house that grows with you! Natural building materials and advanced technology enable healthy and ecological living environment for a reliable fixed price. The variable modular system consists mainly of the flexible and healthy building material wood., wood-based materials and recyclable products. Therefore, the thermal finish is also achieved ecologically and naturally using wood products such as cellulose blow-in insulation in the floor, wall and roof areas and soft wood fibre boards on the façade.
COMMOD HOUSE has received numerous awards for its modular houses and interior design, which also were featured in several publications internationally.
