Two emerging design movements are present in Precht's modular housing concept. Dubbed 'The Farmhouse,' the vertical development is conceived to infuse the urban environment with a sense of agriculture, ultimately bringing residents back to their roots.
Firstly, Precht's modular housing concept is constructed of prefabricated A-frame units that can be distributed based on preference and space availability. Moreover, the structures will be created from cross-laminated timber which is a cost-effective material. Therefore, a sense of customization and affordability is present in this idea.
Secondly, the structure will also boast areas that are specifically geared toward growing produce. Precht plans on incorporating hydroponic unit, solar panels, among other things to allow for a multi-functional living space. Ultimately, the modular housing concept is envisioned to connect city folk with agriculture and therefore, empower them and build a sense of community.
