This is the Week’nder by Lazor Office, the architecture studio that brought us the FlatPak house. It was installed on Madeline Island last summer after a short ferry trip across Lake Superior. The Week’nder includes extensive glass area and operable windows, sustainably harvested wood framing, steel and pine siding, galvanized steel roofing, and a compact footprint.

This is a prefab design by Phoenix-based ASUL — which stands for adaptable system for universal living — and CSCP Consult in Savannah, Georgia. The tiny accessory dwelling unit has a 16′ x 20′ interior and is used by CSCP Consult as a “Think Tank,” or office, library, and study. The ADU, as shown below, is adjacent to a restored mid-century modern home and rests on 6-foot stilts to comply with FEMA flood zone requirements.
We’ve followed the growth of Reclaimed Space over the last few years and the Austin-based company has delivered some incredible rusty modern prefabs all over the country. The factory is now finishing up work on a “Glam Tent” for Dunton Hot Springs Resort outside of Durango, Colorado. The build includes a reclaimed bathroom and tent roof from Montana-based Reliable Tent & Tipi.
This place was inspired by Dasparkhotel, an innovative hotel in Austria built with recycled concrete tubular rooms. Pictures of the place have been floating around the internet in the last few weeks. It’s called TuboHotel, and it’s located 45 minutes south of Mexico City. Each TuboHotel room includes a queen bed, desk light, fan, and under-bed storage.
This tiny modern studio is sited on a woodsy lot in Slough, UK. It was designed and built by in.it studios and has about 400 square feet (37 square meters) with a lounge, bedroom, and bathroom. The company told us in an email that they prefabricated the studio with a high-performance wall, roof, and floor assembly and an exterior of cedar cladding.
