This is The Shoebox House in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s an award-winning design — Citation Award from the Santa Fe chapter of the AIA — that also captured LEED Platinum certification with 88 points, a phenomenal feat given some of the challenges. Architect and builder Gabe Brown, Praxis Design/Build, was able to put a 1,700 square foot home on a 2,300 square-foot L-shaped lot, while still giving the owner a separate art studio, a gallery-like living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a study.
This is Canada’s first LivingHome, and it’s located on 20 Senlac Road in Toronto, Ontario. The home, registered for LEED and seeking LEED Platinum certification, is complete and furnished, though the exterior still needs landscaping. The modern prefab LivingHome was developed by Nexterra Green Homes, a company that builds individual and enclave homes that are modern, upscale, and environmentally friendly.
Last week, Greenfab was awarded LEED Platinum certification for this modular home, a contemporary residence located in the Jackson Place neighborhood of Seattle. It’s the first prefabricated, modular home in Washington to obtain this level of LEED certification and the design is part of Greenfab’s 1300 Series now available nationally.
This is Alley House 2, a modular prefab home aiming for LEED Platinum certification, located in the Madison Valley neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. We looked at the home during site assembly and note that it’s complete and listed for sale at the offering of $599,000. The home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a one-car garage (that could be used as a workshop or converted to an ADU), and 1,687 square feet.
LivingHomes recently introduced a new, lower cost prefab called the C6 and built two models to showcase to the world. Last week, we mentioned the Palm Springs C6 and this one is located in Long Beach, California (catch a tour Feb. 25, 2012 if you’re in the area). The home was designed by LivingHomes in collaboration with Make It Right, an endeavor by Brad Pitt and Bill McDonough, and was built to a LEED Platinum level environmental program with Cradle-to-Cradle inspired materials.
