Small Style at Dwell on Design 2009

Dwell on Design keeps getting bigger and better every year, and the Dwell Outdoor exhibit promises to be just right for these (un)extravagant times.  The modern design event will be held from Friday, June 26, through Sunday, June 28, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.  The entire program will be diverse and compelling, but I'm particularly intrigued by the lineup of four small structures planned for the 15,000 square feet of outdoor exhibit space.  Check these out:

(1) The California Edition miniHome:
Sustain Design Studios (our prior coverage here, here, and here) is always doing great things, and the next iteration is their new 12×36 California Edition miniHome.  It's under construction right now and will feature passive cooling and ventilation, as well as a number of other green features.  Pricing starts at ~$135,000.

(2)  Reclaimed Space 400 SF Structure:
Reclaimed Space (our prior coverage here) is a company that builds prefabs almost entirely out of reclaimed materials.  Reclaimed Space will have a 400 square foot, rustic, modern structure on display which is built from reclaimed materials.  These buildings are beautiful.

(3)  IC Green Container Prefab:
IC Green is a design-build firm that builds modern, sustainable prefab dwellings from containers.  The company currently has six different layouts ranging in size from 320 to 2400 square feet.  They're going to display a container-based structure at the show, and we're excited to see it.

(4)  Studio Model of the Modern Shed:
You've heard of the Dwelling Shed by Modern Shed (our prior coverage here), and it's no surprise that the popular 10×12 studio shed will be on display.  People love it because it's flexible and relatively affordable.

Of course there will be other worthy exhibits, but these four all have the small meme in common.  Visit Dwell on Design to plan your trip …

    Interesting. I wonder what their primary market focus is going to be. Is this just a concept? Or are they going to actually sell these and try to get people to buy them. They look like they would be perfect as a concept house, or for sheltering of the homeless or disaster victims.
