An adaptable dwelling to suit the needs of the ever-evolving multi-generational family. The design team at ELK set out to design an affordable modular housing system which responds to the site, climate and the multi-generational family. The modular design could be easily replicated on other sites in the city and offers affordability of construction through incorporation of modular/pre-fabricated methodology.
