aka “Burton Residence by Marmol Radziner”
Prefab construction designed from the ground up to work in virtually any setting, even up remote hillsides with lesser roadways. Using a number of sustainable strategies and materials, assembled in a single day and delivering a stunning result. We’re not talking trendy shipping container faux environmentalism with splashes of colour, this is the Real Deal.
Dwell.com has stories and photo galleries detailing the background of this fabulous prefab (A Simple Plan, construction of Long Valley Ranch House) and other prefab homes that give great details on the process from the owners’ perspective. This is a teaser of Dwell’s large gallery of large photos of the on-site installation in Long Valley:
Long Valley Ranch House by Marmol Radziner
Mapped By Architourist.ca
Listed location: Mendocino County, California
From the architect:
This vacation home is set on the crest of a grassy knoll in Mendocino County. The goal was to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the 160-acre property by siting the retreat in a careful and unobtrusive manner. The 10-module home forms an L-shaped plan, framing views of a canopy of mature oak trees to the south and east.
The main volume is oriented east to west and arranged in an open plan. The living room, kitchen, and dining room collectively open southward onto a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace and pool area. From the main volume, the master bedroom extends to the north, following the edge of the hilltop and ending in a private deck that takes in the morning light from the east.
