Pretty nice, eh? In a previous post, I mentioned that Michelle first introduced this slick new design in her speech at the Dwell on Design Conference, but I unfortunately didn’t have any pictures. Well, images are now available online and I have to say that I think it’s by far MKD’s most beautiful (and most expensive, i’m sure) yet. The Solaire is decidedly less prefab-looking than the Glidehouse and the Sunset Breezehouse because it’s been strategically designed for a much different purpose – “to offer healthy living in the city.” Traditionally, the drawback to an urban lot is its limited accessibility to light and air. Through clever planning, MKD have overcome this dogmatically accepted urban condtion to “sculpt light and air into the center of the home.”
As I previously mentioned, the mk Solaire is developer-friendly. Built around an organizational strategy that maximizes flexibility for multiple units or duplex developments, it really is, as the website says, “a perfect fit for a modern, eco-friendly community.”
