Pre-Fabricated: 2 | SPG Architects | Container Architecture | Scoop.it

This four-bedroom vacation home is a study in spatial efficiency, coming in under 2,000 SF of living area including 1,700 SF of modular construction and 240 SF of site-built construction.

The design can be adapted to any site of the owners choosing. The two-story factory-built modular house has a reverse living plan to maximize available terraces and views for the primary family kitchen, dining and living areas, while tucking three bedrooms and a master suite into the lower level.

Conceived specifically to touch lightly on the landscape both during and after construction, this home is ideal for flood-prone areas. This home is comprised of two living volumes that are joined by a prefabricated, site assembled entrance staircase that provides an immediate visual and physical connection to the upper level.

Each volume is made of two stacked modular units, that when raised on piloti, allow the landscape to move through and under the house that provides an environmentally sensitive and visually dramatic design solution...

Greenfab is a Platinum Modular Home

Greenfab is a Platinum Modular Home | Container Architecture | Scoop.it
Last week, Greenfab was awarded LEED Platinum certification for this modular home, a contemporary residence located in the Jackson Place neighborhood of Seattle.

It’s the first prefabricated, modular home in Washington to obtain this level of LEED certification and the design is part of Greenfab’s 1300 Series now available nationally.

The prefab has 1,870 square feet and several features for energy efficiency: double-glazed windows with a U-value of 0.35, R26 exterior walls, Energy Star appliances, energy recovery ventilation, heat pump electric heating, backup radiant electric heat, and a GE hybrid heat pump water heater, according to a Greenfab release.

For water conservation, the home has low-flow fixtures, dual-flush toilets, a rain garden, a 1,400-gallon water storage cistern that collects rainwater for irrigation and toilet water, and three, 300-gallon storage basics that filter and treat greywater from showers, sinks, and the washing machine.

The home is also smart wired with digital monitoring system that collects and measures data relating to weather, energy usage, and water usage in order to give the owner constant feedback via an iOS-based app.

PH-1 Modern and Green Prefab Home by Place Architects

PH-1 Modern and Green Prefab Home by Place Architects | Container Architecture | Scoop.it

PLACE houses provides smart, affordable, and green prefab homes to the Puget Sound marketplace and beyond. Prefab not only describes the construction method but the process as all decisions are made upfront. Pick a model and finish package and six months later move into your new home!

The first of the PLACE houses completed, PH-1 is an expanded PH Large with an additional Accessory building featuring parking for two and office space above. Built for a busy family of five plus dogs, the stock design was adapted to create a 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath open plan home that’s stylish, durable, colorful and fun.

Solar domestic hot water supplements household systems and entirely heats the backyard lap pool; green construction saves money and resources, and the house is always filled with natural light, fresh air, views – and friends and family. Modular construction will allow 70% of the home to be factory built allowing for quicker project timelines and price points roughly 10% less than when our houses were “kit” homes...
