It took just a couple of hours for Home Depot’s prefabricated LivingHome to be assembled on an empty lot in uptown Palm Springs. It was specially delivered to the site for Palm Springs Modernism Week 2012.
Featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, the home wraps around its welcoming entry courtyard/deck, creating an easy indoor/outdoor flow.
Decorated to the nines by Jamie Bush & Co., the LivingHome C6 packs a lot of living into its 1232 square feet.
The interior is a showcase of curated eclecticism.
Vintage furniture rubs shoulders with new custom-designed pieces. From the sheepskin throw over the slat wood lounger to the stone-topped console holding the horizontal collection of design books, there is the feeling of a real home with contents accumulated over years rather than pulled together by a decorator.
The generously proportioned great room with kitchen and dining has walls of windows drenching the entire space in light.
One of the 3 bedrooms was outfitted as a home office.
The other bedroom was a child’s room. A very lucky child indeed!
A colorful vintage Moroccan rug makes playtime particularly worldly, while a miniature Eames elephant stands by patiently.
The master bedroom occupies one wing of the house.
With judicious use of both window and wall, the bedroom is airy and light, but with enough wall space for art, furniture and the obligatory flat screen television.
With its own en suite bathroom, this area can easily become the parent’s retreat.
LivingHomes is a leader in factory-built homes. Below is the floor plan for the pre-fab presented in Palm Springs.
In addition to this fab pre-fab home, LivingHomes offer single and multi-family homes designed by Ray Kappe, the founder of Southern California Institute of Architecture – known simply as Sci-Arc.
The first home designed by Ray Kappe, was installed in only 8 hours! It was the first home to ever receive a LEED Platinum certification. You can see more of Mr. Kappe’s work here.
