Piece Together These Modular Prefab Units To Design Your Own Sustainable Home

Jun 1, 2020

Category: Living

Since the beginning of 2020, there’s been a noticeable influx in the number of companies producing extremely modular, prefab cabins and homes from recycled and sustainable materials, and this week we were treated to yet another highly-versatile, environmentally-friendly pre-constructed dwelling with the unveiling of Equals Architecture’s latest release.

Dubbed the “SANCTUARY,” this cleverly-designed structure consists of a series of loops and faces that together make up individual 32-square-foot abodes which can be linked together. Inside, there’s the option for walls to separate rooms, electrical hookups, and insulation. Built with plates and ground anchors that allow the modular dwellings to forgo a traditional concrete foundation, the SANCTUARY buildings are made exclusively using sustainable materials and are produced using a highly-efficient 98% material usage per loop. Packed and shipped flat, the units are available as DIY kits or can be constructed using an on-site construction outfit. The firm’s two-loop Sanctuary: Officium starts at approximately $8,870 and goes up to just above $18,500 for the six-loop Sanctuary: Studio, the largest of the four predesigned units. For more information on the project, visit the Equal Architecture website below.

Purchase: $8,870+
