Prefabricated homes have long added affordability and convenience to the architectural landscape of the U.S., allowing residents to live virtually anywhere for a fraction of the price of a traditional house. In addition to being convenient and affordable, prefab homes also have the potential to be among the most environmentally-friendly on the market--just ask Mexico City-based firm STUDIOROCA.

Developed by architects Rodrigo Alegre and Carlos Acosta, VMD homes are designed to have a small ecological footprint and far more customization options than typical prefab homes.
