A prototype home design for prefab developer Blue Sky Homes has completed designed by the o2 Architecture. This home is designed in the Mojave Desert of California. Between the Prefabricated Home developer Blue Sky Homes LLC and Palm Springs based Architect Lance O’Donnell of o2 Architecture a collaborative is efforted. Which is covers an area for about 1,000 square feet, this living space project is located in the Mojave Desert region at 4,000 meters above the sea level. To serve as a prototype for a prefabricated line of the homes, the program is called for a sustainable, modestly scaled residence. Which is inspired by Le Corbusier’s “Domino”, the building is contains a pure structure of the columns and the planes. The non-load bearing walls and the openings which are can be moved within the structure to satisfy a variety of the site conditions is creates the adaptability.
A grid of the pre-manufactured wall panels and the standardized buildings components is compose the building envelope. This living space project is positioned above the site on the moment-resisting columns and the beams of the cold-formed, light gauge steel. The bathroom module is built off-site and it is delivered finished. This bathroom is containing all the Home MEP system. The placement of the storage cabinetry is defines the interior space, it is eliminating the interior framed walls. The solar technology which is installed is provides the electricity, hot water and the space heading. The transportation volume and promote the sustainability through the materials or the structural efficiency and it can be dissemble and relocated, it is minimize by the flat-packed building components. The low embodied energy and minimizes site waste is ensured by the inherent nature of the prefabricated design. This prototype is completed after the construction schedule of 8 weeks.
