Gallery: ESLICE Prefab Homes Inspired by Loaves of Bread

The downstairs features a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living space.

Latvian architects Toms Kokins, Ēriks Grūbe and Mārtns Hermansons came up with the ESLICE prefab home as a way to find a balance between wants and needs. The small two-story home has two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and living room and can be delivered on the flat bed of a truck. With a small footprint, customizable features, built-in cabinets, kitchen and installed appliances, the ESLICE seems like a lovely and simple answer to prefab homes.

The home has a pitched roof, reminiscent of Latvian barns which also makes it perfect for locations that need to shed snow, such as ski areas. The exterior is constructed out of NCS computerized saw cut wooden boards treated with linen oil and there is the option to add zinc trim. The exterior can be painted or finished according to your desire, and the interior has a flexible panel system that allows you to replace or repaint any of the surfaces. Furniture sets are a collection of designed objects by Mint and MammaLampa lamps.

ESLICE has a simple two-story, two bedroom model as well as plans for a three story home, temporary housing, and multi-family developments. The designers also see the prefab building perfect for hotels, ski cabins, port homes, and even residences for Olympic athletes in Sochi for the 2014 games.

    I love your designs, I hope to make use of one or two of them soon. After patiently waiting for 26 years I have finally been able to make use of the option to purchase two narrow city lots. Finally, after all these years these lots are finally in my posession.
    Please keep me informed of what you have for narrow (15ft)
    2 or 3 story homes. I have 2 narrow but long (125 ft) lots over looking a sunken freeway (8 lanes wide)and a light rail line across the freeway. Properly built these lots will allow the 2 houses to have views of downtown Sacramento 40 blocks to the west, and views of the Sierra Nevada mountains 40 miles to the east.
    I love your designs but genuinely need help decideing what to do.
