In partnership with LivingHomes, the design Studio of Plant Prefab, industrial designer Yves Béhar designed a customizable system for tiny homes that will be officially unveiled tomorrow at the Summit Festival in Los Angeles. So far, only renderings are available, but essentially the following images are what a few different combinations will look like:
The YB1 system is customizable to accommodate different roofs, window layouts and climate conditions, but there are three main options for floor plans to choose from, which can all be seen on Plant Prefab’s website.
Sizes will range from 250 square feet to 1,200 square feet. Square footage of a typical tiny home varies, but they’re generally between 400 and 1,000 square feet, so YB1’s options extend that a bit on both ends.
In terms of materials, Béhar and LivingHomes kept things environmentally friendly with the use of materials like Forest Stewardship Council certified wood for the siding and cement panels. One of the two roof options allows for solar panels or a green roof, which further extends the environmental initiative.
For around $280,000, YB1 can be yours. If that amount is too much to encourage you to get on the tiny home bandwagon, LivingHomes says that future models designed by Yves Béhar will be available for less than $100,000.
