The P.A.T.H. homes are a line of homes developed by Slovenian prefabricated housing specialist Riko in collaboration with French designer and architect Philippe Starck. The P.A.T.H. or Prefabricated Accessible Technological Homes are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and generate more energy than they consume.

The homes can have either an all-glass outer shell, a wood-glass combination or a fully wooden shell. The roof, fittings and cladding can also be customized.

The prototype Montfort show-home comprises 36 DualSun panels and 22 standard photovoltaic panels. All in all, the array generates 11.8 MWh of electricity per year, taking care of around 70% of hot water needs.

The P.A.T.H. homes cost between $3,166 and $5,700 per square meter depending on the options chosen. They will be delivered within six months of placing an order.
