Tiny Modular Homes Win Industry Honor
After spending years of consulting on notable, award winning modular housing projects, R&S Tavares Associates has built two-story, modern prefab beach bungalows in Ocean Beach, San Diego.
This development was created under firm constraints set by local zoning officials, meaning the homes were constructed off-site to minimize disturbance to the community and surrounding businesses. The homes were sustainably designed with the area in mind. Large roof decks offer 180 degree views to the water from the channel to the North to the Pacific to the West.
However, the three units are not constrained in their design. At 840 square feet, each home features 13-foot ceilings that create an open-air feel throughout the home.
The thoughtful floor plan utilizes the space to perfection with 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The open floor plan paired with the loft-style bedrooms create a spacious, comfortable home.
Each home features a large roof deck with panoramic views of the water. Guests are immediately impressed upon arrival by a Portuguese cobblestone driveway. The cobblestone was imported from Porto, Portugal and installed by three Portuguese master masons to create the Copacabana Boardwalk pattern.
The home was name the Modular Home of the Month for May 2017 as part of the program for Modular Home Builders Association member companies to display their projects to architects, engineers, contractors, developers, owners, students, and more.
