There's a lot of news coming out of the prefab world these days and we thought it was time to mention a new line of modular green homes from Marmol Radziner Prefab called Locomo — or LOwer COst MOdular. With this new line, the company hopes to make “green prefab homes more available to individuals and small families,” said principal Leo Marmol in a statement.
You’ve probably heard about Marmol Radziner Prefab‘s latest single-module offering called the RINCON, right? RINCON is the moniker for their latest modular series, a line of homes that can double as a small prefab dwelling or ancillary living structure, you name it. The name is inspired by the Spanish word for "nook" — an apt description for this little accessory structure. The largest model in the series is RINCON 5, and it’s a 660 sf model with full kitchen, living room, bedroom, and deck area.
Damien Somerset and Nicole Bassett of Shift33 put together this video interview with Leo Marmol, innovator of green prefab. Definitely worth a view. I’ve always been an advocate of green prefab, because I think it’s where the green building revolution is going in the future. What do you think?
