To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, various companies have taken steps to create sustainably-inspired products, projects, and architecture. For the renowned designers at Koto and Plant Prefab, however, the occasion presented the perfect opportunity for the pair to partner on not one, but two stylistic dwellings — the Yksi, and Piha.

Both the Yksi and Piha are the latest examples inducted into the pair’s LivingHomes line; an architectural project promoting sustainable construction, materials, and processes, while still remaining rooted in prefabricated practices. Arriving as the companies’ smaller, timber-clad floorplan, the 1,148 square-foot Yksi makes its debut under the guise of a two-bedroom beachfront residence, calling upon an elaborate first-floor living area and second-floor kitchen to maximize natural light and spatial utilization. The second dwelling, Piha, elaborates on the architecture of its smaller counterpart, introducing a four-bed, three-bath layout with Scandinavian lifestyle and design aesthetic at its center. To provide a feeling of openness, the firms have created a segmented courtyard area between the home’s bracketed living spaces, promoting beauteous views, substantial light-fall, and outdoor interconnectivity.
