0499 Sage Residence
This is a pre-fabricated modular house built in California in 2005. It is a compact 1400 sqft, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, with an open kitchen, living/dining, family room space. This wonderful plan lives much larger than it appears on paper. Although small it has long vistas on a sight line from the kitchen to the family room. This series of rooms lay on a diagonal open to one another at their corners. It makes each of the spaces feel larger, discrete rooms yet open in plan. In the sketches the modular units in different colors tell the prefab story. The house site is unusual in that the back yard is really at the side, so the front porch wraps around and becomes the rear deck. Deep overhangs protect the living spaces from summer sun.
