Villa Grow / Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

One of the challenges of prefab housing solutions is that not all families live the same way, resulting on standard environments not suitable for family living. With this in mind, KKA (Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture) desgined Villa Grow, a Villa that is adaptable to all to all kinds of families and can be extended as they grow.

This villas have a common basic unit that can be extended by adding new modules. The angles at the end of each unit allow for different orientations, on which you can have a linear house, a patio house, or an organic layout that opens to the landscape. They can even be put together to form a large neighbor.

Interesting presentation on how an evolving family (single with dog, just married, 2 kids…) can grow its house by just adding modules as needed, a true custom prefab.

The Villas are sold in the United Kingdom and Sweden, and are produced by Kjellgren Kaminsky and Emrahus.
