After the big success of the Desert House, a prefab home designed by Marmol Radziner Prefab, here is their new arrival: the Nevada House 1. This project not only combine the benefits of a custom residential design with the efficiency of factory-built houses, but also clearly express this change in the way houses are now thought and bought. Before Thanksgiving, Marmol Radziner Prefab installed the thirty five modules of Nevada House 1 in just three days without a glitch. Check out their new video for a glimpse of the exciting delivery and installation.

Nearly-completed modules arrived at the Las Vegas site with pre-installed casework, windows, doors, fixtures, and wood siding. A crane set the modules on the foundation to create 8,100 square feet of interior living space and 3,400 square feet of covered deck for indoor-outdoor living.

Nevada House 1 is Marmol Radziner Prebab first two-story prefab home. At the same time as their factory was fabricating the modules, the site foundation was being prepared. The foundation includes a sunken auto court and subterranean basketball court, wine storage, and media room to create more usable spaces below grade.

After several years of development, the architect, Marmol Radziner Prefab, demonstrates that it is possible to make stylish and sustainable prefab housing reality while succeeding to understand the culture of building in Southern California/Nevada – to take advantage of indoor/outdoor living.
