Le Refuge S750 has been developed on the basis of the S500 tiny house for people looking for a simple, harmonious and functional place in which to feel at one with nature. Thanks to a completely glazed facade, this green and affordable modern prefab kit home has the quality of being able to frame a landscape and to offer compact spaces bathed in natural light that feel larger than reality.
An added bonus is that with careful siting, Le Refuge S750 has been designed to make the most of passive solar gain as a source of free & sustainable heating – making it possible for a LEED® Platinum certified, Net Zero Energy or Off-Grid home when suitably equipped. This high specification modular prefab kit is ideal for use as a holiday home, an independent living unit for a growing family or as a guest or rental suite if your property has the space for this 2 bed design.
A true concentration of talent, the home is the result of an exceptional collaboration between renowned Montreal Architects PARA-SOL, and the accomplished manufacturer of modular prefabricated buildings, ÉNERGÉCO CONCEPT.
