Prefab Green: The Work of Michelle Kaufmann Designs outlines the firm’s approach to design, building, and sustainability. Drawings, renderings, diagrams, and photography will clearly show that an architect-designed home can utilize green prefab building practices without compromising aesthetics.
Prefab Green lays out green building values and explains the different types of prefabrication in straightforward, uncomplicated terms. Later chapters walk the reader through the Glidehouse™, Sunset Breezehouse™, mkSolaire™, mkLotus™, custom work, and multi-family-community approaches to see how these principles and building techniques are applied. Stories of clients, beautiful photography, and green building information will engage design professionals as well as homeowners interested in an attractive home that leaves a small environmental footprint.
