Mar Vista Connect 11

Connect Homes

This Mar Vista site had an outdated, energy inefficient 1200sq ft house on it. This was replaced with a state-of-the-art 11 module, 2900sf home – a great example of what the Connect Homes prefab system can do.

A carport/office structure placed at the front of the lot breaks down the project’s scale with the main two-story house pushed towards the rear of the lot. A sliding wood gate at the back of the carport opens into a central courtyard for the perfect combination of indoor/outdoor living. The major spaces of the house spill out into this courtyard, showing an innovative approach to more densely occupying Los Angeles lots – while providing multiple outdoor spatial experiences. The house is Net Zero Enabled and has many green features.

Connect Homes was founded by architects committed to changing both the prefab and housing industries. The results are beautiful, modern green homes at a fraction of the time and cost of custom site-built construction.
