The Quarry House is situated just five minutes away from Princeton University, New Jersey. Designed by Marina Rubina in collaboration with GMLM Design Giedre Miller the home has elite features of its own. It was fabricated at a modular factory in less than a month, and installed on site in one day.

According to the architects, the residence utilizes the best practices, but takes the design to the next level: “no need to standardize the design as long as standard fabrication methods are used“, they explained.

This project shows that affordable prefab houses can be built without sacrificing aesthetics. A key part of the design included sustainability: “A high efficiency HVAC system and solar shading for large expanses of glass provide for minimal utility bills. Going beyond the stereotypical modular construction, the use of cantilevers makes for a more efficient structural system and creates porches and solar shading. The low slope roof is designed for green roof installation“.
