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.
