Local architecture firm LivingHomes/Ray Kappe presents the WIRED Home, their latest prefab home--and one that's geared toward the techie-environment-conscious set. Via the Wired web site: "The $4 million modernist home in an exclusive enclave of Los Angeles allows luxury and the environment to live together in harmony.The WIRED Home is where green plugs in. LEED® certified and designed by Ray Kappe, FAIA, the house is prefab to reduce cost and waste. Installation takes only two days. Fully automated to allow for simplicity and control, it is filled with the latest in gadgets, gear and appliances, yet still keeps kilowatt usage low. Even the car [ED: car comes with house?] is environmentally friendly. Emitting essentially nothing but water vapor, the BMW Hydrogen 7 is the first hydrogen-powered luxury performance sedan for everyday use."
