NODE is a flexible, modular prefab dwelling system with the smallest possible footprint.
Co-founded in 2016 by Matt Wittman, NODE was conceived as a prefab tech company that integrates architecture and landscape through a modular system that results in dwellings that sit lightly on the land: a flexible, configurable system designed for long-term sustainability. NODE solves the challenge of small spaces and relationships to surrounding via a prefabricated, hyperefficient system of modules, which have the ability to seamlessly expand and weave into their environment.
Wittman Estes designed for NODE an infinitely flexible modular system that sites lightly on the landscape.
Construction of NODE Whidbey Guest House
Endless configurations are possible — NODES can be added together in expandable arrangements of Sleep NODEs, Living NODEs, and Pavilion NODES with connected walkways
Placing NODE Whidbey Guest House lightly onto landscape
Prefabricated NODEs can be delivered to remote sites with minimal disturbance to the native landscape.
Suburban NODEs can be inserted into backyards as Accesory Dwelling Units (ADUs) - minimizing construction time and adding density in existing city neighborhoods.
Urban Nodes can be dropped onto rooftops in dense urban areas, expanding the livable space in downtown zones and high rise neighborhoods.
