Tasked with building a low-cost but high-quality prefab home in the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, local firm EFFEKT responded with a three-prong, timber-clad structure that's flexible enough for a growing family. At the center is a open-plan kitchen/living/dining area that branches out into two wings—each with a bedroom and bathroom—and a third wing with additional living space that can be converted into a third bedroom. As EFFEKT's Mikkel Bøgh tells Dezeen, they built the foundation in a way that makes " he addition of a fourth room very easy."

The cost of building the 1,460-square-foot home is supposed to match the cheapest of Danish kit homes. At about £1,222 per square meter, the home comes out to roughly $260,000— certainly not the most affordable home you can build (prefab or otherwise), but a lot less than some other designer prefab houses. Dezeen has more details on the home.
