Arch Daily recently covered Villa Grow from Sweden:
villas have a common basic unit that can be extended by adding new modules. The angles at the end of each unit allow for different orientations, on which you can have a linear house, a patio house, or an organic layout that opens to the landscape.
The Mountain Lodge is a modern take of a traditional barn of the region in Härjedalen, Sweden. The Lodge comes as prefabricated wooden units. It was originally designed in 2005 by architect Peter Sahlin for his own family, as a vacation retreat in the fells of Härjedalen. Five houses have since then been produced in the region.
The construction consists of a wooden framework and prefabricated wall- and roof elements.
Additional images can be seen on the architect's website, which has minimal information in English.
Back in March, Swedish designer Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture and developer Emrahus presented six prefabricated "passive" homes at the Hem & Villa housing fair in Malmö, Sweden, with a second presentation last month.
Here's a paraphrase from Google's translation of the Emrahus home page:
The reason that we no longer need a heat source is that the house has well insulated walls and ceiling ... which retains the heat generated by household appliances, lights, TV set, and people who live in the house.
Mini house is a “friggebod” concept which brings some fun and excitement to a dull and conservative market. The concept means prefabrication, flat-pack delivery and weekend-long build-up! Building a house should be fun and easy. Kind of like putting together an Ikea cabinet!
(As best we can tell, friggebod means garden hut or shed.)
...this one-bedroom, one-bath, 1,000 square foot rental is described as being a "stunning new 'green' loft on a tree-lined cul-de-sac in a beautiful residential neighborhood just blocks from downtown Culver City, Sony Studios, Helms District, and Hayden Tract...Cost: $2,300 per month.
...for those who like their homes clean and crisp with a modernist edge. These finely detailed, timber clad pavilions are based on a modular system offering the ultimate in flexibility...
Inhabitat's Prefab Friday covered a prefab cabin two weeks ago:
...the Clara Cabin from hiveMODULAR is a perfect solution. You get all the comforts of cabin life - a bed, reprieve from the bugs, and weather - while still being able to connect to the surrounding nature.
This week, Prefab Friday looked at a Swedish prefab:
...the Plus House embraces its Nordic roots and rural setting as a thoroughly modern take on the Swedish barn house.
Hive Modular sent out an email update and shared a Picasa page which shows many of their more recent designs.
Inhabitat's Prefab Friday looked at a container home in San Francisco:
...there isn’t a shortage of uses for containers as shelter, especially for those who like that super industrial architecture aesthetic. Leger Wanaselja Architecture finished their Container House at the close of last year, bringing a more traditional look to the container composed residence.
