PreFab. The word conjures images of… well, anything boring and bland and cheap. But in February, Ann introduced us to some of the great prefab options available from Lake Flato Architects, Devin Cannady, and Tumbleweed Houses. Today we’re going to take you into the realm of modern prefab structures.
The first comes from Alchemy Architects, based in St. Paul, Minnesota. Their weeHouse is available in a variety of combinations, allowing you to create anything from a one room addition to an entire 2,200 square foot house. Other options include wheelchair accessibility and upgrades for net zero energy use.
IC Green Inc, creates structures from recycled shipping containers. Able to create 320 square foot pool-side cabanas, sprawling residences, or multi-storied structures…it seems that the shipping container might just be the perfect building block.
A low tech and low impact solution to the guest house (these are not necessarily prefab but they are mobile)….Rolling Huts is designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig Architects, a firm located in Seattle, Washington.
And in case you haven’t had enough…this is a website dedicated entirely to prefab architecture…fabprefab!
