weeHouse not just for cabins
The press keeps rolling in for the boys at Alchemy Architects. Linda Mack of the Star Tribune recently wrote about the first weeHouse in an urban setting. Phillips Garden, located at 27th and Cedar in Minneapolis, needed a second floor on their building. So instead of hiring someone to build one, Phillips Garden bought a prefab weeHouse and stuck it on the top of their current structure. Until that move, the weeHouse, which was featured in the Walker Art Center exhibit "Some Assembly Required," had only been used as a cabin. To listen to a Building Minnesota story on prefab, check out iPod your House: A Look at Modern Prefab -- it features an interview with Geoffrey Warner of Alchemy Architects.
