Gallery: v100 Mod Box: the Next Generation in Prefab Design

 
The standard model includes two boxes separated by a breezeway. One side includes a kitchen and living space and the other side has a bathroom and bedroom.

The v100 Mod Box system is based on 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft boxes that can be assembled into any shape to create practically any structure – from a home to an office, studio, or they could even be grouped together to make a hotel. The boxes can be quickly assembled and are super low maintenance. As Saccento told the Phoenix New Times, “There are no nails, no screws, no paint, no drywall, no maintenance. Two people could build one of these in two days.” The standard model includes two boxes separated by an 8 x 10 breezeway with glass walls. One side serves as a kitchen and living space and the other contains a bedroom and bathroom.

Each unit would be self-sufficient and include a sofa bed, TV, a desk, a chair, a WIFI connection, a telephone, air conditioning, a bathroom, and automated controls. The entire hotel is automated with self check-in and out kiosks, a built-in safety system, and a 24-hour customer service telephone line will keep guests comfortable. Staff requirements would be low, thus further reducing operational costs. Energy-efficient sustainable design also plays a huge role in the hotel — it has an expected energy savings of 40% compared to average hotels. [...]

    I saw the mod box in person recently, it’s amazing. It feels much bigger inside then I expected. I would gladly trade my house in for this space.
