Reimagining prefabricated housing for accessibility, comfort and premier design with Cabin | Stack | Prefab

Batulao, Philippines

Cabin | Stack | Prefab is a prefabricated home design system composed of stacked and interlocking cabins. Leveraging our long experience of pioneering high-performance enclosure design with well-crafted residential design, our studio has developed a kit-of-parts for more efficient and affordable home assemblies that are both flexible and enduring.

Cabin | Stack | Prefab designs include both 2-story and 3-story options, composed of high-performance exterior modular panels. The panels are expressively sophisticated and come in a variety of materials and colors, including vision glass with integrated louvers, insulated wood and metal. 

While standard opaque panels and fenestration layouts exist, including factory-made glass corners, many of the panels can be reconfigured before construction.  This facilitates a tailor-to-fit capability to better match each homeowner’s particular lifestyle and each unique site with a tunable building envelope of distinction as well as optimized performance, day-lighting, shading and views. 

"One of architecture’s most pressing issues is to balance social equity with environmental sustainability. Cabin | Stack | Prefab offers a strategy to help achieve this critical goal with more affordable living on a smaller footprint."
- Craig Copeland, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C

The prefabrication system ranges from interchangeable parts to interlocking and stacking cabins aimed to elevate the quality of living while also lowering costs and increasing sustainability through greater resource management.
