Kohler LivingHome, a prefabricated and sustainable house by Kieran Timberlake

LivingHomes®, a developer of modern, sustainably designed, prefabricated homes, has partnered with Kohler Co., to present the Kohler LivingHome, designed by architects Kieran Timberlake. Designed to achieve LEED-Platinum certification, the two-story Kohler Living features furnishings, materials, products and technologies that showcase the best in high design and technology with a low ecological footprint.

Designed to achieve USGBC’s LEED for Homes Platinum certification, the Kohler LivingHome reflects LivingHomes’ Z6 Sustainable Building Goals which include six key objectives for all LivingHomes’ construction and operation: Zero Water, Zero Energy, Zero Waste, Zero Emissions, Zero Carbon, and Zero Ignorance.

This house was premiered at the TED Conference in Long Beach, CA a few weeks ago. Here´s a time-lapse video of the house being assembled:

From the recycled steel and timber-efficient engineered lumber that make up the modules, central vacuum system, and mini-duct air distribution and ventilation systems that help improve indoor air quality; to the bio-composite wood siding, recycled glass tiles, blown-in insulation, high-performance windows with recycled frames, water-saving features and the home resource monitoring system that displays water, energy, and gas usage in real-time, the Kohler LivingHome is built to achieve a minimal environmental footprint.

The Kohler LivingHome is being offered for sale at $499,950. For more information, click here. Images of the house interiors, after the break.
