Composed of 28 triangle units, this Portland residence has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an accessory dwelling unit for a total of 3,930 square feet. A partial subgrade basement was built on site and supports two stories of modules. The two modular levels were delivered in 6 units.

Skylab Architecture had an open house for their latest project, the Taft Residence, the first built example of their HOMB modular design system. The HOMB system is based on a series of equilateral triangles that guide both the structural elements of the building as well as the spaces themselves and it harkens back to similar work done by Frank Lloyd Wright late in his career. Unlike Wright though, Skylab’s been able to leverage the latest in prefab construction techniques to build this house in particular out of just four modules, assembled on site in the span of a couple of hours. A two-story double-wide that is anything but. My understanding is that the modules were built by Method Homes, LLC offsite and that Rainier Pacific was responsible for buttoning up the project on-site. Excellent work all around.
