Gallery: PREFAB FRIDAY: Thailand’s Modular Green Home

Thai Prefab

The theme for the 2008 fair was ‘Green Home Effects’ — and the main attraction of the show was this prefab container home by Bangkok-based firms, Site-Specific and Buatalah Studios. The model home is made from four re-used shipping containers and prefabricated modules. The prototype is an attempt to re-wire the methodology behind building a comfortable and sustainably-built home while meeting the needs of a Thai family.

    Hi Bridgette Meinhold, thanks for sharing, the concept of “4Rs”– reduce, reuse, recycle and renewable is great for everyone who was looking for renovating ex-house or new house. In Thailand, the prefab modular style building is seem to be new-concept of thai people that there are not used to about it.

    However, if the prototype has met the needs and lifestyle of Thai family, prefab modular is quite interesting.
