KODA – FOR HEALTHY LIVING

Air in a KODA house is clean and always kept at the right level of humidity. The finishing materials used are completely non-toxic. The amount and tone of light can be adjusted to suit our natural senses and pace of life. Noise, dust, bacteria, cold weather, winter gloom and summer heat are all kept outside thanks to the sturdy door, quadruple glazing and vacuum-insulated concrete walls. Red eyes, dry skin, environmental stress and any foggy thinking caused by excessive amounts of carbon dioxide are also a thing of the past.

KODA – THINKING GREEN

Living in a KODA house is neither a drain on the environment nor your bank account. With solar panels on the roof, KODA returns more power to the grid than it uses. Features like these mean that little or no energy is wasted:

• use of smart systems
• thin but well-insulated walls (with a U value of 0.1 W/m²K)
• quadruple glazing (with a U value of 0.3 W/m²K) and
• innovative LED lighting and architecture (which makes maximum use of sun).

Materials are also used sustainably. For example, the construction of one unit requires as little as 9 m³ of concrete and, at the end of its life, components can be disassembled and reused easily. Erecting or relocating a KODA house doesn’t require extensive digging and laying foundations either. In fact, as roomy as it is, KODA has a very small footprint – little more than 25 m2.

KODA – FOR FREEDOM OF LOCATION AND POSITION

Much of our quality of life depends on both our home and its location meeting our needs. When choosing where to live however, we may take risks on both fronts. It can be difficult to make major changes to a conventional home as inconvenient and extensive repairs are often involved, or even full demolition and reconstruction.

Moreover, houses and apartments can’t be moved - but KODA can. KODA is free-standing, not fixed to the ground, and its design and structure allow it to be assembled and disassembled many times over. Dismantling and preparation for transport can therefore take as little as four to seven hours - even less if you simply want it to face a different direction. All of this gives you more freedom to make changes to suit your needs.

KODA – CLEVER DESIGN

In our minds KODA can become whatever you want…… a city centre home, a lakeside summer house, a cosy café, an office, workshop or studio or even a classroom.

Its clever design provides the inspiration to make best use of every square inch of space and envisage how the built-in components, even the walls, can be adjusted to meet their purpose most effectively.

KODA – YOURS IN JUST SEVEN HOURS

KODA’s components are manufactured in a controlled and optimised factory environment. As a result erection on a chosen site takes no more than seven hours sparing the neighbours and surrounding area the noise, dust and other inconvenience of ongoing construction work. KODA doesn’t need any special finishing once built either – allowing you to move in straight away.

Thanks to its solid structure a KODA house can be assembled on different surfaces (gravel, asphalt and others) without the additional work of digging up the ground and laying foundations. All KODA needs is a level footing and connection points for water, electricity and sewerage.

What People Say About KODA?

  • To me, KODA is the Mecca of health. One step from nature with an unending supply of vitamin D. And my bike’s right outside the door if I feel like doing a bit of exercise. Indoors I can really feel myself being soothed by the timber walls, my very own corner spa with its LED lighting, the reed mat that gives me a place to rest and a good night’s sleep, the clean air I need to think clearly and the space to meditate with my face turned towards nature and the light.

    MARIIN PETOFFER - 21, student and marketing specialist
  • Setting up Kodasema homes in Tallinn is definitely worth considering because they’re innovative, modular houses perfectly suited to an energy-efficient lifestyle. (Postimees, 08.03.2016)

    ENDRIK MÄND, Architect to the City of Tallinn
  • If you compare Kodasema’s houses to ours, I’d say we’re making Volkswagens and they’re making Lexuses.

    HENRI BEKMANN, Member of the Board of modular building manufacturer Greencube
  • KODA is this perfect, amazing find – white concrete, reminiscent of a Laser sail, strong and sensitive. And so sexy!

    KATRIN KULDMA, Designer and fashion artist
  • It’s a sustainable house, smartly put together, with some really cool design elements. The ace up its sleeve is definitely how easy it is to use: buying one doesn’t entail reams of red tape.

    AIVO ROSENBERG, Building contractor and member of the Board, AS Toode
