This is the Modern Living Showhouse on display at Dwell on Design 2011. The green prefab was designed by Jonathan Davis of pieceHomes, built by OneBuild Inc., and styled by Zem Joaquin and ecofabulous. With 520 square feet, the dwelling is spacious enough to include a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. See the interior photos below with a description of green materials and technologies included in the showcase.
Update 7/1/2011: Dwell Show Prefab to be Sold on eBay.
Looks like progress is being made on the new showhouse planned for Dwell on Design 2011. The 550-square foot prefab has a lively modern design and will be completed by an all-star project team – OneBuild (a new modular startup), pieceHomes (led by architect Jonathan Davis), and ecofabulous (led by designer Zem Joaquin). The showhouse will be auctioned through eBay with proceeds to benefit Global Green USA.
Here’s a quick note to modern enthusiasts. Gilt Groupe just listed plans for a Dwell Home by Turkel Design for 50% off the normal rate. That’s $12,500 for the Finisterre 1115 plan and architectural services to customize the plan. The plans are for a contemporary home that can be used as a first home or weekend retreat, depending on an owner’s situation, and doesn’t require much land to make it work.
