In short, the weeHouse can be customised to meet the owner's needs.
"The Alchemy office," reads the architects' website, "is currently working to develop the weeHouse as a flexible line of prefabricated modules that may be adapted and changed to meet the diverse users' needs for cabins, houses, offices, on rooftops, or in developments."
weeHouse can be used in any climate: it is equally well suited to desert or the tundra. Not only because of the materials and technologies employed, but because of its relationship with the environment. Its simple form and brown colours can add warmth to a snowy landscape or blend into a scorched one.
Two different types are available, Solitaires and Companions, for singles and families. Their cost is the most amazing thing about them: only $125 per square metre! The weeHouse and other prefabricated home designs are on display at MOCA - The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles - until May 20 2007.
