Prefab or Group houses built to standardised designs don’t have to be dull – and the way the building regulations are going here in EnZed, they might soon be the only affordable way that home-owners might ever live in an architect-designed home. -- the only economical way to get a flower instead of a weed out the system.
Here for example are three houses produced by a crowd of US home-builders called Villa Modern [hat tip Prairie Mod] offering “a combination of modern influence infused with some of the traditional forms and elements that most people associate with a comfortable liveable home.”
“The modern home designs here are inspired by the art and architecture that began in Europe in the early 1900's and was characterised by clean lines, broad windows and open floor plans. Incorporating the historic design concepts into today’s lifestyles the houses represented are liveable, sculptural, and dramatic.
Modern influenced, but moderately affordable.
“Inspired by historical precedent in modern design, and a lean towards flexible open living spaces, these designs reflect a more sophisticated value on home design and statement,” they say.
They’re not exactly site specific, but they indicate that mass-produced needn’t mean demeaning.
