arkit ecostudio

image: arkitaustralian architecture studio arkit will construct a full scale ecostudio prefabricated house as part of melbourne’s annual state of design festival. the home measures 50m square and will host different events during the festival. to begin, two people will be living in the ecostudio full time, working from it in the day and sleeping there a night. inside, the home has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living space and an adaptable services hub. on top a green roof provides insulation and greenery. arkit constructs a variety of sustainable prefabricated homes using their modular system. all their structures feature multi compartmental wall panels that provide insulation and rigidity. sustainably harvested western red cedar and hoop pine are used inside and out , while water-saving technologies help further reduce the home’s environmental impact. it took 6 years of internal r&d prototyping and 1 year of environmental analysis by ghd to create the ecostudio.
