Kenneth Cobonpue is joining a cluster of super distinguished names like Philip Johnson, Alan Ritchie Architects, Zaha Hadid, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, David Salle, and Daniel Libeskind who were tapped to design one of many pre-crafted properties for Revolution: an initiative founded in 2016 that unites over 60 of the world’s preeminent architects, artists, and designers to create a series of limited edition prefab livable spaces.
Cobonpue’s Hedera is the newest addition to this very cool initiative.
A two-bedroom duplex, conceptualized as a refreshing (yet super simple) escape from the mundane design of township units.
The open, minimalist concrete interiors directly contrast the exterior, which is meant to seem almost consumed by the greenery taking away from an overtly prefab look – so a more permanent look as opposed a home that actually looks like it’s been snapped together.
Veiled in ivy, the exterior foliage not only cools the building but purifies the air, and lends a calm, organic feel which stays true to Cobonpue’s aesthetic.
The average price for these homes is about $300,000, with an average size of 1,000 square feet, which is pretty amazing given the superbold font names designing these spaces.
