Now that prefab is ultra-hip, I’ve come to expect new designs to have the modern, minimalist look that makes prefab so sexy. But outside of residential prefab, I’ve come across a lot of institutional projects that still don the cardboard boredom of their predecessors. So it was a pleasant surprise to discover SIMPLE, the new modular student housing line from Garrison Architects and Kullman Industries.
In addition to the “inherent” sustainability factor of off-site preproduction, the modules can be designed to include geothermal and photovoltaic systems, making them eligible to receive LEED status. SIMPLE Dorm has a highly detailed website where you can view specs and pricing.
