mnm.MOD builds super energy-efficient, modular homes - and their Superb-A House in Venice Beach, California is a stellar example of their prefab building system. The Santa Monica-based prefab designer has developed a patented "thermo broken" insulated wall and flooring system that allows them to create a high-performance envelope. The system allows them to reduce costs, be flexible in terms of design, and quickly assemble projects while maintaining a high level of sustainability.
Fabricated off-site, the walls are built according to the specifications of the house, then transported to the site and assembled there.
This results in a high level of quality in fabrication, the elimination of waste and quick on-site assembly.
As to the design of the home, mnm.MOD carefully plans each home according to the site, sun orientation, climate, shading and wind.
The design is then translated into a series of walls that further optimize the design.
Superb-A House is a two bedroom home which features a music room and a jewelry studio on the 2nd floor.
These awesome kitchen bar stools tuck right under the counter for a super low profile design.
Sliding windows/door push into the wall to open up the living space to the pool.
Ample outdoor living spaces expand the home and take advantage of Venice Beach's climate.
Completed in May 2011, the 2,400 sqft home is also net zero energy.
The home's custom design and layout is accomplished through the use of modular and prefabricated wall assemblies.
