Stilt Studios

Bali-based architect Alexis Dornier has developed a series of prefabricated homes that can easily be taken apart and reassembled in a new location. Stilt Studios are environmentally friendly prefabricated villas that can be erected in a variety of different places without causing major damage to the landscape. The elevated structures have a minimal physical footprint, and have other sustainable features that include large overhangs designed to reduce solar-heat gain, rainwater harvesting, cross ventilation, and energy-generating solar panels. It is also envisaged that food could be grown underneath the buildings. Dornier is currently developing a series of different typologies and facades, all customisable in shape and material, so that the buildings can serve a range of uses. He also suggests that multiple units could be connected.
