Builder of modern, sustainable, precision-engineered prefab structures Method Homes brings their Paradigm Series prototype to Los Angeles for Dwell on Design 2013

Modular homebuilder Method Homes announces its prefab home Paradigm I will be on display at Dwell on Design (DOD) in Los Angeles. Dwell on Design is Dwell Magazine’s annual conference and the country’s largest convention on modern design taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 20–22. The home will be displayed as the jc penney Prefab Home, showcasing new designer home collections by Jonathan Adler, Sir Terence Conran, and Dwell on Design’s keynote speaker and legendary designer Michael Graves.

The display home designed by Bogue Trondowski Architects is a prototype for the Paradigm Series, a new line of prefab homes built by Method Homes.

At just 722 square feet, the modular home demonstrates how the efficiency of living within a small footprint can be blended with the comfort of modern amenities. “Paradigm is a series that reflects Method’s core mission of building homes that are both thoughtfully designed and sustainably built,” says Method Homes co-founder Brian Abramson. “The series maximizes efficiencies – from the construction process to day-to-day living.”

Each Paradigm home comes standard with exterior rigid insulation, triple paned windows, a heat pump hot water heater, heat recovery ventilation, and LED lighting. The net-zero energy ready prototype home features a vast array of sustainable and energy-efficient upgrades, including locally-sourced Western Red Cedar siding, a corten steel brow to regulate heating and cooling loads, FSC bamboo hardwood floors and cabinets, eco recycled countertops, ENERGY STAR rated appliances, and a highly efficient HVAC system. Method is offering the exclusive opportunity to purchase the fully loaded prototype at the conference.

In addition to showcasing the Paradigm prefab, Method Homes Co-Founder Brian Abramson will participate in the DOD prefab panel discussion Prefabulous at Dwell on Design at the Sustainable Design Stage on Friday, June 20 at 3:30pm where he will discuss Method’s current and future projects and the making of the Paradigm prototype home. The Method team will be available for questions, interviews, and tours at their hand-crafted booth located at DO41 in the Dwell Outdoor area.
