Fashion houses, founded in 2014 by Sydney architect Matthew Dynon, go further in on-site manufacturing. When you order one of their “modular custom ” apartments, practically the whole house comes folded on site.
MODE offers modules that can be configured, connected, rotated and stacked to meet the different location restrictions, solar orientations and hosting requirements , “explains Matthew. With an enviable location on a coastal hill, this inverhole home consists of three factory modules with a lightweight prefabricated frame equipped with finishes and household appliances.
The modules, built by prebuilt, include an open-plan kitchen and dining room, two living rooms and a large rustic pantry that connects to the thermally massive garage, allowing food to cool and ventilate for longer.
Living Homes of California works with the best architects to create modern prefabricated homes designed with high-quality, natural, non-toxic and durable materials. The company offers standard models and also builds bespoke prefabricated prefabrics, ranging from about $130 per square foot to $200 per square foot for high-end steel frame apartments.
