Prefab House Design in Maryland – Stunning, Stilted, Sustainable Loblolly by Kieran Timberlake Architects

As far as prefabs go, this design has a heightened sense of space. Set on stilts, Loblolly House by Kieran Timberlake Architects has a minimal footprint, and in turn, maximum impact. Located on Taylors Island, a barrier island off the coast of Maryland, this modern house blends nature and architecture in what could well be the future of prefabricated homes. The 2,200-sq.-ft. house is based on a more efficient building method. Thousands of “building blocks” that make up the house were fabricated off-site, and pieced together on location in less than six weeks. The unique home boasts a facade that “flips” open to reveal the outdoors, allowing passive cooling. Alternately, the home can be closed up to channel the sun’s energy for off-the-grid heat. Another sustainable feature of the house is in its simple construction – and deconstruction. The home’s many parts are designed to disassemble with ease, allowing for repairs, alterations, reclaiming and recycling without harsh environmental impacts. Kieran Timberlake Architects
