The surprisingly spacious net-zero Arc House demonstrates how arches can make a small space feel much larger. Designed in collaboration between Green Builder Media, Shelter Dynamics, Kitcheneering, and Align3D, the building combines the economy and simplicity of tiny house living with cutting edge building science.
The Arc House comes in different sizes-from 400 to 500 square feet-and targets the next generation of home buyers who place great value on flexibility and affordability. It complies with California’s factory modular codes and features all the amenities of standard-sized homes. Self-sufficient and compact, the house integrates several sustainable design elements into a single package.
An off-grid, solar-powered home with superior insulation and energy storage capability, the Arc House comes with a fully-functional kitchen and a bedroom with a walk-in closet. “With The Arc House, we’re demonstrating more efficient ways to build, but we’re also demonstrating that there is a market for smaller, sustainable and more functional housing,” said Jim Gregory, founder of Shelter Dynamics. They certainly have our attention.
