The LoftCube is prefabricated, which saves energy and material use, and it’s designed to have a minimal footprint. The home’s 360-degree windows provide ample daylight and natural ventilation while opening up the interior to incredible views. The prefab can be customized with energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, and it can be joined with other units to create a modular LoftCube complex.

A LoftCube can be used as a mobile home for the modern nomad, a sky lounge for a modern hotel, a garden house that is close to nature, a beach getaway or a minimalist home. The luxurious yet tiny prefab measures just 420 square feet, and it can expand outdoors with an optional patio. The interiors are customizable as well – the living, kitchen, and bedroom areas can be adjusted according to each owner’s needs.

It only takes 5-7 days to set up a LoftCube, and the units can be disassembled in just two days and transported by truck from place to place. The sky is the limit with this innovative prefab that takes small space living to exciting new heights.

    This would be great low cost homes, add solar and underground utilities. pictured these setup in organized rows beneath several wind turbines or mountain side.

    All we need is someone to figure out how to mass produce them efficiently.

    I would think the Vietnamese bamboo housing experiments to be a better choice if you wish to make truly affordable lower income housing. This space age pre-fab is just too costly to produce!

    what about toilet an drainage?

    I called the number to inquire on these loft cubes. The lady was what I considered to be quite rude. She told me it would be in the millions to get these homes in the US. to sell. She also said the show on tv was way under the cost they really were. I was interested in selling them and living in one. But she insulted me more then once. Now, I am afraid to
    do anymore research on these homes.

    I am interested in your $40,000.00 CUBE AS SHOWN ON TV.

    Much like a trailer house, but without the convenience of wheels.

    HGTV presented a segment of this fantastic Loft Cube on Dec. 13, 2013 stating that the cost is $40,000 USA. Is this correct? Does it include necessities such as a toilet, shower, sink, central heat and ac, outdoor steps up to Cube, etc? Do you think it would be structurally sound enough to place in the Los Angeles, Ca area?

    111-180? WTF. This isn’t a solution. That is expensive as fuck today. When is someone going to take improving the world seriously? These could probably me made much easier. You could literally end homelessness. But NO profit comes first!!

  12. Pedro Acevedo October 5, 2013 at 9:40 am

    The US price is around $111K – $180K…

  13. Sharon Lewis October 4, 2013 at 9:52 am

    what is the price of this unit?

  14. LKnewman2013 October 1, 2013 at 9:35 am

    What is the average price range per cube? What type of footings and foundational support are reguired for a beachy terraine, such as in Florida- especially in an area of the country subject to high winds (or hurricanes) ?

    How much would a place like this cost? I’m a recent cancer survivor that finds himself both broke from the treatment and ongoing medical expenses, and about to be homeless soon. I currently exist in a 110 sq foot room, so your 420 ft cube would be like a palace to me, and to be honest, exactly the amount of space I both need and can honestly take care of. The surgery I had left me with badly damaged nerves in both arms, so less is better for me when it comes to living space. Please let me know about pricing as you can. Thank you so much for a wonderful product! Here’s to hoping for some good news in my life for once.

    What is the cost?

  17. M. Sparks September 30, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Brilliant Design. What are the cost approximations??

  18. Constantine Koritsas September 19, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Brilliant its everything that the Futuro House in the 1960s should have been. (but this is a much better effort)!

    Very Cool :), I guess this will be the future?
