Greenprophet tells MHProNews that Egyptian Studio House has designed a pre-fab (modular) home called the Oxygen Villa. The solar powered home provides natural light, ventilation and cutting edge photovoltaic (PV) systems. It boasts decentralized waste water treatment and uses cantilevering mashrabiya boxes to catch prevailing winds; perfect for upscale Arab culture.The home uses steel structure, concrete floor slabs and multicolor prefabricated screens that are stacked according to a variety of different configurations. Such stories remind us that pre-fab and modular construction are international, not just North American.
