A sustainable prefab house was designed by Studio H:T. It was completely built in 2010, in Nederland, Colorado. It was designed to be supported by several sustainable features to achieve high sustainability and high energy efficiency.

This sustainable home used 2 shipping containers as its part. They were set in saddlebag formation, connecting local rock outcroppings to the expansive mountain ridge views. The containers house sleeping rooms and working spaces, while the center space covers the entry, dining, living and a loft above. The loft deck has a platform bed that rolls between interior and exterior.

Some sustainable features are designed to be provided for this eco construction. Alternative energy is very important and considered to be used. That’s why solar photovoltaic panels, and pellet stove heating are considered. Green roofing system is also planned. Passive cooling concept were applied also. Solar orientation becomes an important consideration.
