Zenkaya prefab lodges



Design Indaba update: South African architect Zenkaya has sent us images of the prefab lodges they exhibited at Design Indaba Expo in Cape Town last month.


The units are delivered - complete with fully-fitted interiors - on the back of a truck and come in a range of configurations including a 3.4x6m studio model, a 3.4x15.6m one-bedroom version and an 18m-long two-bed model.

  • It’s cool!But it’s a little small.

    Can they be used in conjunction with other buildings? Can they be fitted with solar panels and rainwater tanks? Why is it so expensive?

    Love that!!! Its sleek and simple.
    I would think the transport costs would be pretty steep. Those would abnormal loads.

  • Great article! Check out our blog from the perspective of the owner / designer at http://www.architecturalprefab.com which details everything about building an actual home in the most regulated and desirable city in the US, Los Angeles. Learn how we are doing it for a 2400 foot architectural prefab green home including site costs and details with the factory.

  • I have seen pictures of these homes on a variety of other blog posts and I must say I am impressed.

    In general, prefab green homes are the way to go for a variety of reasons. First, they cost significantly less than custom built green homes and secondly, less energy used to manufacture these homes. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the most important element…they are better for the environment that traditional homes!

    Great article, I hope these types of homes continue to gain popularity.

    I would like to enquire whether it is possible for them to design highway ablution units as well.
