Architects Jared Levy and Gordon Scott have turned their trials and experiences working with modular homes to produce a more efficient and considerate prefab product: Connect Homes. The LA-based company produces smaller residential modules, which can be combined to create homes ranging from one- to four-bedroom spaces, each redesigned to meet LEED Platinum status through a high-performance building envelope and water-efficient fixtures. The Connect Homes module ships around the world at a greatly reduced pricing structure, allowing Levy and Scott to resurrect the original purpose of prefab: to provide simple, efficient, low-cost global housing.
