Jennifer Siegal  has received much acclaim for her prefab structures that combine a clean modern aesthetic with seamlessly integrated environmentally-friendly materials and technologies. Now, the design details of her pioneering prefab concepts can be seen first hand at the Showhouse , completed in August and located in Venice, California. The Showhouse  serves as a showroom and prototypical “model home” for her Office of Mobile Design , which offers prefab homes at reasonable prices, starting at about $240 per square foot.
More than just green and modern, the Showhouse  demonstrates Siegal’s commitment to merging responsible design with new technologies and luxurious details. Her prefab designs utilize green technologies such as tankless water heaters, radiant heat ceiling panels, and translucent polycarbonate sheets, balanced with high-end amenities like the iPort  integrated sound system, Boffi  kitchens, and Duravit  bathrooms. The Showhouse  offers a space to see the functionality of these elements first hand, as well as Siegal’s application of materials such as Kirei  board, bamboo, and coconut palm flooring.
Jennifer Siegal is one of the speakers at the upcoming Dwell on Design conference , which we wil be attending and covering in Palm Springs from December 1-3. We can’t wait to hear more about her current and upcoming projects.
