Love it or hate it, it's innovative and they're taking orders.



 

 

The UP!House, by kOnyk Architecture is far enough along to start taking orders, according to the website http://www.up-house.com/ .

The design, likened to a Stars Wars cruiser class vehicle, is shocking and stylish, but also lends itself well to prefabrication and mass production. It's also very site-friendly with a small footprint and foundation that can be built in hours, not days or weeks. Hard to build sites are accomodated much easier than something conventional.

It steals a lot from automotive design, which is smart because cars would cost about $2 million a piece if they weren't prefabricated and mass-produced.

Now, if an experienced manufacturer will start producing it, the only decision is whether or not to wait for the new model next September.
