This threadgold architecture inspired prefab house design creates a cost effective solution which is ideal for sloping sites, alfresco entertaining and enjoying picturesque sweeping views. The architectural design achieves 2433 square feet/226 square meters of area across ground and first floors. The design generates a prefab house design ideal for short term stay accommodation by creating two separate first floor living areas.

The prefabricated and modular design techniques generate an expedited building program. The spatial layout of this prefab house design is also ideal to overcome the costs and logistics of building in remote or isolated locations with its patented prefab footing system.

The structural steel frame elevates the prefab house design above the sloping site and strategically planned around a centrally located and bi-parting stair. The layout creates five undercover vehicle carbays at ground level. The prefab house design incorporates a double glazed and sound insulated timber pivot door for first floor living area separation. The spatial relationships juxtapose two independent first floor living areas serviced by a kitchen and scullery

The five vehicle carbays to the lower ground floor service each self contained living module of the prefab house design. The design is ideal for short-term stay accommodation laying out bedrooms and wet areas either side of the stair on the ground floor. The central stair services the three bedrooms of each self contained living space to maximize sweeping first floor views from the two living areas.
