Brooklyn, NY, May 2008 -- Developed in collaboration with high quality modular building constructors, these buildings by Garrison Architects utilize state of the art design and manufacturing techniques to reduce environmental impact, construction time, and cost. Built in as little as half the time as conventional construction and costing considerably less, these buildings are attractive, energy efficient and durable.
S.I.M.P.L.E. (Scalable Innovative Modularly Produced Living Environment)
The S.I.M.P.L.E. system is designed for high density, multi story urban applications. It includes a series of prototypical designs for college and university student residences. By combining steel space frame technology and a variety of sustainability techniques, these buildings offer unparalleled responsiveness to college and university needs. The SIMPLE system has been recognized as one of American School and University Magazine’s Top Ten Products for 2007.
R.E.A.L. (Residence for Ecological Affordable Living)
The R.E.A.L. system is designed for low rise, multi-family and individual residences. Focusing on affordable sustainability, it includes prototype designs for townhouses and detached homes. These buildings integrate living walls and green roofs, conserve energy, and are striking architectural designs.
The growing interest in prefabricated building techniques is clear from the current work in architectural schools, popular magazines such as Dwell and the coming show of prefabricated houses at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. The S.I.M.P.L.E. and R.E.A.L. systems take this trend another step by addressing a wide range of building needs with economy, sustainability, and style.
