Few homes leave a physical and carbon footprint as small as the miniHome by Altius Architecture – and this week, Palm Springs Modernism Week guests can tour the energy efficient, modern prefab home during the exciting new Prefab Showcase.
Designed by Altius Architecture and built by HMK Prefab Homes, the miniHome represents the best in modern design and energy efficiency. Design details – such as a structural steel chassis and floor assembly, green materials, reflective thermal barrier, cedar siding, energy efficient windows and cork flooring – have resulted in a reduced environmental footprint, as well as lowered operational and maintenance costs. Like its name, the urban dwelling is a lean, green, eco-friendly machine, incorporating a surprising amount of sustainable technology into a compact (and comfortably livable) space.
“Modernism Week will be a time for the miniHome to shine,” says Luca Brammer, Director of Business Development for HMK Prefab Homes. “We expect a large turn-out and I’m excited to talk about the home’s energy efficiencies and sustainable building products used in bringing the home to the marketplace.”
Energy efficiency will be the cornerstone of Brammer’s presentation scheduled for Sunday, February 17th at 4:00 pm PST. Details to be covered throughout the presentation include, but are not limited to, net-zero energy systems, solar photovoltaic systems and efficient thermal envelope construction. Representatives from Altius Architecture will be featured during two back-to-back “Meet the Architect” presentations scheduled, Friday and Saturday, February 15th and 16th at 4:00 pm PST.
