In a move destined to make prefab lovers drool, Dwell Magazine has just announced the launch of an exclusive collection of custom-designed, modern prefabricated homes. The publication has teamed up with Empyrean International LLC (formerly Deck House), Resolution: 4 Architecture, and Lazor Office to create The Dwell Homes by Empyrean.
“One of the major obstacles prefab has faced,” said Dwell Editor-in-Chief Allison Arieff, “has been effective collaboration among designers, manufacturers, and clients. This partnership brings together experienced parties across that spectrum, all of whom are passionate about and committed to prefab’s potential. As a result, we’re able to offer the public not one but three beautifully designed, highly functional, and eminently livable homes.”
The three designs are featured in the Fifth Anniversary issue of Dwell, which hits newsstands Tuesday, September 20.
The three designs will be Charles Lazor’s Flatpak House, Joel Turkel’s Next House, and Resolution 4: Architecture’s Dwell Home design, which won Dwell’s Home Design Invitational competition in 2003.
Though prices will vary based on size and local labor costs, the average cost of a 2,500 square foot Dwell Home is estimated to range between $175-$250 per square foot. The Dwell Homes will launch at a series of kick-off events throughout the fall, so check the site for details.
