This is Casa Dominguez, a new multifamily development in Los Angeles County. It’s actually the first LEED Platinum multifamily project in the county, according to non-profit developer and architecture firm Abode Communities. Located in East Rancho Dominguez, the project features a blend of one- to four-bedroom green apartments suited for low-income families.
This modern residence, monastic and fantastic at the same time, is called E.D.G.E., an Experimental Dwelling for a Greener Environment. It’s small, with 480 square-feet of space, yet the space appears plentiful as it transforms to suit a variety of uses. Plus it’s beautiful inside and out and has some incredible green elements.

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.
