Clayton Homes turned the prefab world upside down last year when it announced the i-house, a modern, green prefab with an approachable price tag. I-house has been insanely popular and installed in various locations. And it turns out that the company is nearing the release of a new version of green prefab, i-house 2.0, which will have an enhanced front entry, warm and natural exterior materials, and more interior space to accommodate families.
This is a modern home office that was designed and prefabricated by five design-build students in a graduate architecture class at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The project, built with various reclaimed and green materials, was recognized recently with a Citation from the East Bay chapter of the AIA.

The 1,737 square-foot facility originally began as mkDesigns project but – due to market realities we’ve mentioned previously – Studio 101 Designs guided it through completion.
