The Mikra House

The Mikra House is a prefabricated SIPs panel prototype designed and built in collaboration with the San Jose City College. It is an exploration of the limits of the buildable envelope and a study of prefabrication with the use of SIP panels. Designed to fit on a standard trailer, the Mikra is designed to expand upon delivery by adding a loft and three wall panels which fold out mechanically. This turns a 136 sf building footprint into a total of 407 sf of usable floor space.
