Phoenix­-based Cavco Industries and LivingHomes of Santa Monica, Calif., re­cently debuted their C6 model, a LEED Platinum modular unit designed in the mid­-century modern architectural style that was made famous in the desert in the ’50s and ’60s.

Unlike typical rectan­gular modular units, the C6 is built in the shape of a C around a courtyard, which makes the home accessible through a variety of openings to sup­ port an active indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

“We’re trying to shatter the image of modular housing,” said Paul Deroo, VP of sales and marketing for Cavco Industries. The 1,200­-square-­foot unit comes with a number of green features, including cork flooring; natural wood millwork; wood siding; energy­efficient lighting and appliances; pho­tovoltaic panels that provide all of the home’s power needs; no-­VOC paints; low-­flow fixtures; and numerous windows to maximize daylighting, such as floor-­to-­ceiling glass, clere-sto­ry windows, light tubes, and transom windows.

The C6 is available in most markets across the country for about $185,000. Cavco is handling the production of the units and LivingHomes is providing installation and setup.
