The house construction kit is a modular building system that can be combined to various building types for different applications. Multi-storied, cantilevered, and spanning configurations can be designed. Specific measurements for lateral stability enable the construction of earthquake-proof buildings, which are capable to absorb intense seismic activities.

The structure comprises a steel frame with square and rectangular hollow sections and corner points with bolted connections to mount additional elements. The frames can be filled with wall elements with almost any possible opening, from simple window elements to fully glazed decks.

Ceilings and floors consist of prefabricated concrete slabs with ideal heat storage capacities.
