To help encourage new ways of embracing a sustainable way of living, Muji have launched an eco-friendly alternative home.

The 74-square-meter house has been designed with all of the Muji-esq style fans of the brand would expect, from minimalist aspects to clean cut finishes, open spaces, and neutral pallets.

The prefab homes are seen as potential solutions to current environmentally unfriendly home construction techniques, and also offering affordable sustainable homes to the masses.

Each home is built off-site and shipped to a location almost ready to move in. The homes are all single-story, without any columns or fixed divisions.

They have been designed for flexibility, allowing owners to reconfigure the layouts of the homes to meet their changing domestic needs whenever they want.

The homes are made using Japanese chestnut with the roof made from galvalume steel sheets. In  the interior, the homes include pale wood finishes and white walls, a setting perfect for any furniture and decoration.

The overriding beauty of the project is that it is helping people embrace a much more sustainable way of living, try to minimise human impact on landscapes and being closer to nature.

Prices for the Muji prefabricated homes start at £120,000.
