Philippe Starck began working with Riko in 2012 to design a line of prefab homes, and the collaborative team just unveiled their plans to the public. Starting in July of 2013, consumers can configure a home with a variety of materials, exterior facades and even renewable energy systems to meet their needs. From final design to installation, the homes can be completed in 6 months. There are three different basic home models that can be customized for family needs and individual preferences, which may include more bedrooms, two floors and even a garage.

Prefabricated in a controlled production facility, P.A.T.H homes will be built to high standards in a guaranteed timeframe and will not exposed to the elements, which saves time and improves efficiency. Prefabrication will also help minimize waste and maximize material resources. The homes will be constructed from responsibly sourced wood, and they are designed to take advantage of lots of daylight while minimizing thermal losses. Home owners can also elect to include a number of sustainable systems to further reduce their impact, including photovoltaics, solar thermal panels, a heat pump, a wind turbine and a rain water collector.
