What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Making Prefab Work for All
MK: The design process was interesting. The site is in downtown Santa Barbara, which has a strong historic fabric. We wanted to respect that fabric, but still have the home be modern. So we came up with a modern interpretation of the Mission-style clay roofs through the corrugated Corten steel siding on the exterior walls. The velvety finish and texture is quite similar to the tile roofs in color and scale, and we accented with a salvaged Ipe wood for a warm and natural look.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Give Me an ‘H’
In this home prefabricated modules divide the spaces into two wings, connected by a common living space. By using the H plan to create interior courtyards, the architect has created a variety of private views on a confined downtown lot. The layout develops private-view corridors and outdoor rooms, making for a variety of interesting site connections.

Shows the potential use of courtyard idea I like with an in door middle section - 2 horizontal arms instead of the 1 in the H design would allow for an internal court yard while still having the functionality of the H floor plan
