This is The Edge, a factory-built home inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House (not to be confused with the E.D.G.E. prefab). UK-based Boutique Caravans designed and built the modern prefab – which measures 22′ x 42′ – with cold-formed steel, SIPs, and triple-glazed windows. It’s a show house in Penmayne Edge Park in Rock, North Cornwall, a community of 10 low-energy holiday homes in the UK.
This is North Beach Residence on Orcas Island, the largest of the San Juan Islands in Washington. The 2,070 square-foot project received a national AIA Honor Award this year and is owned by Rysia Sucheca and John Warburton for use as a summer house from May through October. It was designed by Heliotrope Architects and built by David Shore Construction.
