Inhabitat favorites Marmol Radziner Prefab and Dwell have teamed together in a joint effort to bring “good design to everyone” with their recently debuted Skyline series of prefabs! Unveiled just this past Friday at the Dwell on Design Conference, the Skyline series comprises four interchangeable floor plans available in six modern configurations that make extensive use of recycled materials, high efficiency insulation, and offer the optional installation of solar panels. Available in sizes ranging from 1 story (1755 sq ft) to two stories (3180 sq ft), the series has been designed for installation in urban spaces and offers the privacy of a residential retreat while bringing the outdoors in through a series of floor to ceiling windows and patio spaces.

As expected in a Marmol Radziner Prefab, green aspects of the Skyline collection include the use of responsible woods and materials made from recycled content, low-VOC paints, energy efficient appliances, insulated glass, and the optional installation of grid-connected solar panels. Through their prefab construction the series delivers high end modern design and quick on-site installation without custom design fees. Prices for the Skyline collection start around $500,000.

Leo Marmol says: “We’re excited to make Marmol Radziner Prefab homes more accessible than ever, through our unique partnership with Dwell magazine. Our sustainable, standardized, modern prefab homes for (the) Dwell Homes Collection are significant, launching at a critical period in the housing market.”

    What about a green roof?? You can improve the efficiency of solar and get all of the benefits of a green roof when you combine them! http://cleanerairforcities.blogspot.com/2009/06/combining-solar-and-green-roofs.html

    Overall, pretty cool looking house.

    I agree with bmck in the respect that these are super expensive for pre-fab. I would expect something more in the $250-350K range for prefab. Also the article mentions ability for privacy, which I don’t see here. Finally the homes don’t seem to be designed to fit into more traditional neighborhoods at all.

    Ridiculous. If I had $500,000 – $750,000 to spend on a 1750 foot house, it wouldn’t be a prefab. This type of over-designed, over priced “prefab” will be the death of the movement this time around (see Michelle Kaufman). What ever happened to the idea of prefab bringing affordable quality and design to the average buyer?

    Correction: These are the same designs that MRP presented at Dwell 2008. Only this year they are co-promoting them VIA Dwell Magazine.

    “good design for everyone”

    Everyone with a half million, that is.
