Prefab homes are in high demand – and for good reason. Besides the fact that they come ready-to-assemble and cut down immensely on leftover waste, they also have the ability to work with the landscape instead of against it. This prefab New York vacation home by Resolution: 4 Architecture is purposely situated around the landscape’s mighty trees, making it the perfect retreat for the owner’s family of six.
Ample room in the backyard makes this home perfect for the littlest members of the family to let off some steam.
The modern charm continues through the kitchen, with honed granite counter tops and simple cabinetry. Architect Joseph Tanney added eight-foot sliding glass doors in the kitchen and several large windows in the living room to allow sunlight to pour through the house.
An open floor plan allowed for the kitchen, dining room, and living room to exist in one cohesively decorated space. The sofa is Modernica’s Split Rail design, the retro-esque chairs adorning in the dining room are Vico Magistretti’s Maui chairs and the table is from Antonio Citterio.
The upstairs contains three bedrooms and one master suite with enough comfortable lounging space for the whole brood. As you can see, natural light is a staple in every area of this tastefully decorated home.
Prefab homes, with their plethora of options and environmentally friendly vibe, seem to be the wave of the future. And as with other prefab homes we’ve taken a peek at- you can’t even tell the difference.
