This isn't your average portable home. Built in the tradition of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Usonian" houses, the The Taliesin Mod.FabTM is a house for the everyman that doesn't compromise high design with its egalitarian qualities.
This modern update on the Usonian preserves Wright's optimism for the future of housing with ecologically sensitive features. For example, cool clean kitchen sinks from Teka and bath & kitchen products from IKEA don't just guarantee all your creature comforts, but also recycle their grey water for use in the Toto toilet. Roofing systems from Kyko Roofing Systems don't just keep out the elements, they also capture rainwater. Appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero are rated as low-consumption fixtures that leave a light environmental footprint. These features that the tranquil interior puts you (and the surrounding ecosystem) at ease.
A generous porch cantilevered over the desert landscape, supported with metal from Agate Steel, Inc., ensures that the home is sensuously as well as ecologically connected to the landscape. We think Wright would approve.
