Welcome Hometta: Sustainable Modern Home Plans

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

The pinkcomma gallery is presenting twenty-five designs from Hometta, a new company that has commissioned emerging practices from across the country to produce small, sustainable, contemporary home designs. We’re not sure how to pronounce the name (home-ta or home-etta?) but we really like the idea…

Prospective home plan buyers and people interested in leading contemporary home design can get an in-depth look at Hometta’s new design delivery model. Hometta is a web-based modern home plan company offering small, sustainable home designs from internationally recognized architecture and design studios. The company is committed to making design accessible and affordable to a large cross-section of prospective homeowners. Unlike traditional stock plan companies, Hometta partners with progressive architects and provides resources to guide subscribers through the home-building process. As part of a multi-city event, the exhibition has been shown in Houston, New York, and Chicago. Featured are physical, three-dimensional resin models of all twenty-five home designs, assembled as a collective to suggest a neighborhood of modern houses.

While it may be too late to go to the opening reception if your reading this check out the Hometta website and tell us what you think? While this may be a better solution than pre-fab in the near future we have to wonder how many new houses really need to be built in our current economic and climate situation. We feel the truly great ideas may be how to deal with modernizing all the houses we’ve already built (poorly, ugly, and oversized) making them more sustainable and appealing in the future.
