Element House (EH) is a SIPS modular home designed with the goal to operate independent of public utility services by integrating passive systems that allow for e-generation and off-the-grid living opportunities in virtually any location.
The Element House shape is derived from the Fibonacci sequence, which is a describer of developmental patterns in living organisms. This mathematical series was applied in order to explore the idea of recombinatory growth in building forms and the economics of spatial compartmentalization.
Working with the visionary team of Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample of MOS architects, we have manifested this concept into reality. The EH prototype, with a 1543sf footprint was commissioned, funded and built by the Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA). It is currently near compleation at Star Axis in New Mexico.
The Element House prototype is scheduled to open to visitors after the completion of Star Axis sometime in 2016. The collaborators are working hard on feasibility research for development and potential commercial production. Check back this soon for further updates.
