Interface Studio Architects, who gave us the 100K house, is upping the ante in sustainable prefab building by designing a new 72 unit LEED-certified apartment complex in Philadelphia. To be completed this summer, the project features agreen roof, great urban density, lots of room for bikes, and, of course an efficient manufacturing process.
The Philly-based project is unique in that it is made up of 80 boxes built in a factory and stacked up five stories high. At 60,000 square feet, the combined units give us a glimpse of the promise of modular building for larger developments. The housing will be located near Temple University and rents will be just $650 a month to live in one of the most progressive apartment buildings in America.
