California Roll: Desert Housing

california roll
Called California Roll, this eco-friendly prefabricated housing is actually designed to live in the conditions of desert. The house features heat-reflecting exterior for high energy efficiency. All the windows have adjustable transparency and the front door opens by sliding straight up on hydraulics, while its lower part folds down to form a step. When the door closes, it’s vanished into the wall. The interior of the house and the skylights are fully customizable to make each building a personalized home.
