The term “prefab” didn’t always sit particularly well with consumers. The word has been synonymous with dull nondescript houses lined up in a singular block. French architect Jean Prouve pioneered prefab housing technology back in 1940, working his magic on crafting demountable houses for those that lost their homes in World War II.

But the industry has evolved dramatically since then, giving birth to unhampered creativity. Thankfully, these prior troubles have been addressed by Revolution Precrafted Properties.

An innovative enterprise that specializes in the business of prefabricated homes, Revolution makes one’s dream house an actuality while keeping worries at bay. Their prefab homes and transportable pavilions bring the concept up a notch with collaborations with 61 of the world’s noted architects, designers and industry-leading creatives coming together for every stylishly sustainable piece.

Revolution’s prefab creations simplify the process for homebuyers and developers alike. Its edge not only lies in its world-class designer aesthetic but also on its functionality and efficacy over traditional builds.

Robbie Antonio, founder and CEO of the brand, said: “The term ‘prefab’ refers to off-site or factory-assembled building components often sized in modular dimensions. A prefabricated building has innate advantages when it comes to consistency of quality, fit, finish, and over-all cost benefits.”

The lengthy time-consuming old-fashioned mechanisms of paperwork, sourcing reliable contractors and suppliers and picking out every single detail from floorings to fixtures are eliminated. In its place are low-maintenance homes that are high quality and saves time like no other — so much that you can easily move in to the house in just about 90 days upon placing an order.

The quick and easy pace does not sacrifice a prefab’s integrity. It’s certainly not a thing to be worried about in Revolution’s case. Their creations go through a prototype stage, where all components and processes for the build are tested, improved upon and certified. Furthermore, these pieces are code compliant with all seismic, wind and other environmental load and site-specific factors that could affect its performance.

The production process is as meticulous as it gets. It begins with extensive shop drawings based on the concept plans provided by the consultant or designer. These shop drawings are then adapted for compliance with local and national codes where the houses will be built.

Once the shop drawings, materials and specifications are approved, the house is built in an indoor facility where sections that can be modularized are assembled. The kinds of machines used are matched to the material and design at hand, and are usually sourced locally. A kit of parts catalogue is then generated to enable dismantling, packaging, transport and reconstruction.

The cutting-edge design built on advanced technology is set to change the standard of living. It democratizes the ultra-chic architecture arena and brings designer homes more accessible to a broader market.

At a range of 50 sqm to 250 sqm with components that could fit in a shipping container, its transportable feature becomes a core appeal.

Each borderless piece transcends time and space, conveniently movable to wherever you are, and breaking free from location and construction complaints. Perhaps, the best part of every Revolution home is its versatility. There’s a wide range of pre-crafted designs suited for any area, function and preference.

Purchasing each unit is also easy with Revolution Precrafted website’s user-friendly interface. Each unit comes with a preview of the structure, as well as a complete specifications list of every home. It also comes with a profile of the designer involved in the project, with a description or anecdote of each specified prefab home.

Structures are delivered at your doorstep ideally three months from the initial order, all ready for assembly.

The prices for each designer home begin at P1.5 million excluding shipping, installation, and land cost.
