Designed by architects Jason Halter and Christos Marcopoulous, the 320 square foot MEKA Home is an incredible architectural gesture able to capture luxurious, modern living within an undemanding and unexpected construction.
Certainly attractive, durable and sustainably built with more than 70% of its materials recycled. One of the most outstanding features is that one of these modules runs at just a mere $100 per square foot.
Eco friendly and extremely flexible, each shipping container is paneled in cedar wood over a steel frame shipping container, with doubled glazed argon filled windows, a bamboo interior, slate bathroom, and 100% cedar cladding.
The home works well in an array of different environments and one side of the module can be opened up to create a deck. Moreover, they can be effortlessly transported and the modular system allows for eased expansion in the event the dweller space needs to grow.
Solar power integration is also available for those interested in off grid living. Selling at only $100 per sq foot, the MEKA aptly responds to the issue of cost versus pricing in the discussion of prefabricated home production.
While prefabs are certainly cheaper to build than custom homes, for a number of producers/architects, to remain profitable, their pricing scheme still hovers in a range that remains out of reach for much of the public. Comparatively, MEKA modules can easily be tailored to fit any budget.
