Axiom is a projected building system for residential use in temperate and torrid climate zones. The system is composed of bolted and/or welded steel tube sections. All elements of the structural and infill panels are pre-manufactured off site. The system allows for mechanical and electrical systems to be integrated within the walls without conflict with the structural system. The foundation system allows for construction on sloping or flat building sites. The integral trellis system provides shade and weather protection. They may also be used for vegetation suitable for each specific climate. The building system is intended to be non site specific and more universal in nature. The two to three bedroom unit shown is only one of many configurations and sizes possible with this method of building.
