Our Vision

To create a people-centred housing model as a radical alternative to the current housing market.

To help everyone have an affordable home and a better quality of life.

What is ModCell TAM?

Your home, your way

A flexible, environmentally-friendly home, tailored to your needs, that you can move into within months of placing your order.

A housing unit that makes the most of small sites in ways that other solutions can't match.

A solution that can be bought, part-owned, leased or rented individually or in multiples for larger families and larger sites.

A healthy home that can change with your needs, with the potential to be combined with extra units and transported to different sites.

A renewable building system

ModCell TAM is manufactured using renewable, carbon capturing materials including timber and straw that minimise the environmental footprint.

Energy costs and carbon emmisions are reduced by up to 90% compared with traditional building methods.

ModCell TAM is cool in summer and warm in winter. It is intelligent both in operation and design.

In one simple move, we both save you money and provide a straight forward and practical way to live, that does not cost the earth.
