A small prefab house that can be located just about anywhere a home owner wants to put it has been designed to integrate green concerns into prefab modular design aesthetics.

“Green Zero,” a punnish name derivative of “ground zero,” it seems, is by Studio di Architetttura Daniele Menichini, and among the harmonizing work to make green part of design, the exterior of this modular home is wood and it sits on a natural stone foundation. You can see from the photo above how the rainwater management and drainage systems are integrated into the architectural design.

The prefab house is smallish. It can be thought of in terms of a bare-minimum for living. It could be used as a retreat from everyday life, a guest house, or a backyard shed that can be used for accomodations as well.

Since it has a deck and a bathroom, while being small and transportable, it can be set anywhere and be used for just about anything.

The interior space can accomodate at least two people. There are glass windows and doors, even in the bedroom, to provide scenic views of wherever the owner of this modular house puts it. And behind the bed is a colorful (purple, green and beige) design based off of the forms of trees (also keeping within the green theme). This prefab is actually built and is located in Italy where the design team is from. To see more of the prefab home design team, click here for our directory.
