iHabit is a unique modular system that gives a new horizon to prefabricated housing. iHabit uses an elegant and state-of-art module which is designed to the minimalist contemporary standard whilst providing warm and organic feel as a place to call ‘home’. Base module is a sufficient unit to provide comfortable living spaces that comes with environmental ‘skins’. The skins are a movable device which can control sunlight, wind and privacy as ESD screens.

The skins are providing opportunities to customize the modules according to residents’ taste. This concept is similar to the idea of having skins on iPhone. iHabit’s strength also lies in the flexible layout that could be adjusted according to the residents’ preference.

Lower level unit provides open and simplistic space with sculptural stairs at the entry and full-height / full-length wall unit that accommodates living room cupboard, kitchen, study desk, laundry and entry cupboard. Upper level unit can be angled to give the best orientation to the bedrooms and the bathroom. iHabit will be an exciting brand that gives you a joy of new lifestyle.
