Revolution Precrafted Has a Lenny Kravitz-Designed Prefab House that Can Be Shipped Right to You

Architecture nerds know that the name attached to a home can be just as exciting as the design itself. There’s a reason Eichler’s and Wright’s are so sought after and sell for millions. Lovers of design are eager for the chance to own a home designed by their favorite architect. Revolution Precrafted knows this and has developed a line of unique, limited edition homes designed by world-renowned contemporary artists and architects. But there’s a twist. These homes are prefabs that can be ordered online and shipped right to you in a matter of months.

In the world of home design, there’s been a big gap between high-style dream homes and the super affordable prefabs. Revolution Precrafted is the first company to address this by bringing on a team of over 80 architects, designers, and creatives to develop their line of limited edition homes. The homes span every style and need, from simple studios to avant garde pods to classic Mid-Century Revivals. Each design is a reflection of the individual architects’ signature styles.

The creatives brought on board to design the homes range from architect Philip Johnson to music mogul Lenny Kravitz to artist Tom Dixon. Each design team worked to develop one-of-a-kind structures exclusively for Revolution Precrafted. Philip Johnson’s Modular Glass House is reminiscent of his famed Glass House, known for its all-glass exterior walls. For his Instrumental Home, Lenny Kravitz created a laid back space with touches of classic Mid-Century Modern style – a perfect escape for writing the next chart topper. And leave it to Tom Dixon to design a home that is part home, part art installation. His design, The Block, makes plywood feel high-end in a way that only Dixon can do.

Along with the famous names and high style that comes with a Revolution Precrafted is the ease that makes prefab homes so desirable in the first place. Once the order is placed, delivery time averages two to three months. You provide the prepared site, complete with necessary foundation, and they deliver the home right to you. Just like a typical prefab, the homes come complete with all major components like HVAC and plumbing already installed and ready to be hooked up. It couldn’t be any easier than that to get the stylish home of your dreams. Whatever your style, there is a Revolution Precrafted for you. Check them all out here

For Sale: A Charles DuBois Swiss Miss A-Frame in Palm Springs

Palm Springs. No other place in the world boasts the mid-century modern pedigree of this Southern California town. During the 1950s and ‘60s, architects flooded the area with a strikingly new home concept. With open floor plans, vaulted ceilings thanks to dramatically sloped roof lines, and a strong relationship between indoors and out, the mid-century modern home represented a total lifestyle shift. Names like Eichler, Frey, and Neutra became synonymous with the style and today are some of the most sought after homes in the country. But one architect walked his own unique path, developing a distinct style that stands out for its quirky facade.

While the name Charles E. DuBois is not as well known today as his contemporaries, his homes are instantly recognizable and a cherished part of Palm Springs’ Mid-Century Modern treasures. Nicknamed “Swiss Miss” homes, just one look at the entry will tell you why these dwellings are so special. Taking the iconic vaulted ceilings of the time to the extreme, the Swiss Miss is best recognized by an A-frame roofline that touches the ground with the rest of the home spreading out to either side. While today it’s known as a Swiss Miss, there’s debate as to where DuBois took his influence from, with many citing the “Tiki” trend that was also taking hold in the ‘50s. Whatever the inspiration, DuBois’ A-frames are exceptionally rare, with only 15 left. And now one has hit the market.

The Environmentally-Friendly Cliffside Ring House in Greece is Giving Us House Envy

Building a home is hard on the environment. Even when built with sustainability in mind, the land surrounding a home site takes a hit that can disrupt wildlife, kill native foliage, and reshape the ground from months of construction vehicles driving back and forth. With this is mind, one Greek architectural firm took steps before breaking ground to ensure Ring House would give back to the land rather than take from it.

Designed by decaArchitecture, Ring House (and its accompanying guest house) is one with the land in a way we haven't seen before. While it's sustainable with windows strategically placed for cross ventilation and receives its power from solar panels on the roof, the project also restored the natural beauty that was disrupted during its construction. The team at Deca carefully mapped the site and preserved the excavation materials so that they could restore as much of the topography as possible once the home was finished. They also collected seeds from the native vegetation in order to replant it once the construction was complete, resulting in a lush, native landscape surrounding Ring House.

St. Andrew’s Beach House Says ‘No Thank You’ to Oversized Vacation Homes

The trend of “McMansions” here in the United States seems to be dying down. Ever since the housing crisis in 2008, the country has seen more and more people looking to downsize for more modest homes. But Australia never got the tiny house memo and the coastline of the country is quickly becoming filled with oversized vacation homes. These massive structures, used just a few days a week, seemed wasteful to a recent client of architectural firm Austin Maynard. He challenged the team to buck the trend and create a simple weekend escape hidden in the dunes.

Located on the southern coast of Victoria in the Shire of Mornington Peninsula, St. Andrew’s Beach House stands out from its neighbors for all the right reasons. The area, which is along St. Andrew’s Beach, is crowded with enormous vacation homes. Yet turn down the dirt driveway to St. Andrew’s Beach House and you’ll discover a secret coastal retreat unlike any other.
