New prefab home designs channel gorgeous, moody Scandinavian style

Koto, the U.K. studio behind sleek prefab houses, cabins, and playhouses, is now collaborating with California-based prefab powerhouse, Plant Prefab, on two new home designs. The studio’s Piha and Yksi concepts will soon join Plant Prefab’s sustainability-focused LivingHomes line.

Piha, which starts from $612,000 for the module (and from $830,400 for all hard costs), is a full-on house whose 2,184 square feet bend into an L-shape. The timber-clad design features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two courtyards, and a deck designed for outdoor gatherings. The charred timber facade is interrupted by big stretches of windows that slide open to connect the inside of the house to the landscape, while the bedrooms are located in a separate wing of the house for maximum privacy.

The smaller Yski, starting from $419,000 for the module (and from $533,800 for all hard costs), features two long volumes that stack on top of each other to create a dramatic cantilever. Its two bedrooms fit into a more compact 1,148 square feet that are filled with sunlight thanks to the large picture windows that cap the ends of the house.

Both designs are deeply rooted in Scandinavian style—pale wood interiors, clean lines, and simple accents that make them a pleasing, blank canvas to fill. The interiors center around communal spaces where families can gather for meals, but devote equal importance to the secluded bedrooms where people can have their own retreat.

“When Koto designs a house, we put the family and how they will use the space at the forefront of our process,” explains co-founder Zoe Little. “We see each of the rooms of the home (inside and out) as ‘experiences’ and tailor the design to suit.”
