architecture :: a fab prefab

Fab and prefab are two words you won't find together too often. Especially when you're talking about those ugly galvanized steel buildings often seen in rural landscapes that are basically used for functional farming and light industrial needs. But changes are coming! Green architect Michael Jantzen has taken the ugly corregated structure and tranformed it into a cool, modern and yes, FAB minimalist living space.

This affordable, sustainable, energy-independent structure can be reconfigured to suit the needs of it's owners. - “Homestead House is a conceptual design for alternative housing that explores the potential use of a commercially available steel, prefabricated, modular, high strength, low cost, arch building system normally used for agricultural purposes,” said Jantzen.
