The Joshua Tree prefab home made quite a splash at Milan’s Zona Tortona exhibit earlier this year, garnering long lines of fairgoers eager to take a look inside. This steel clad prefab is a compact two bedroom “mountain refuge” with a welcoming, and surprisingly roomy, wooden interior. While the exterior finishes might be a bit busy for some tastes, inside are clean, sparse, modern spaces with plenty of natural daylight.
The design specs and details of this pretty prefab are in Italian, so we were a little humbled in our research attempts. However, it seems the overall space of this small, stylish getaway is just 36 square meters, or about 400 sq ft. And, it appears that the interior configuration can be customized. For instance, the layout could accommodate two large bedrooms on the ends with a kitchen in the eaves, or trade one of the end spots for a larger kitchen area.
We can tell you that the manufacturer promotes the design as an efficient, easily transportable prefab home, with a small price and the capability to adapt to many different kinds of terrain. All of which sounds very good, and from what we’ve seen, looks quite compelling.
