PATH prefab houses designed by Philippe Starck

French designer Philippe has built his own prefabricated low-energy-consuming residence in Montfort l’Amaury, 54 kilometers from Paris. Presenting a glazed enclosure given rhythm by aluminum panels, the two-level house is one of 34 possible permutations of PATH (Prefabricated Accessible Technological Homes), the second series of dwellings designed by the Parisian for Riko, a Slovenian manufacturer of prefab wooden constructions. The new system of modular components reduces delivery time to six weeks, and assembly to two. The flexibility of the composition allows the client to personalize his order at a cost of 2,500–4,500 euros per square meter – on a ground area of 140 square meters minimum and 350 maximum – by selecting: one or two floors; wood, aluminum, or a combination thereof for the facades; a flat, pitched, or cantilevered roof. There are more options: photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, rainwater collection systems, and so on.
