The core values of our team fall into three, equally important pillars of action. We are committed to a diversity of student experiences and backgrounds and a diversity of thought and disciplines. We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and evaluation of technologies across the industrial spectrum. We are committed to a triple A principle of housing: accessibility, affordability, and adaptability. These are our values as a team and a community in hands-on application of academic thought.

Target Market


What separates #HOUSE from our competitors is our partner: Volumetric Building Companies (VBC). VBC is a global leader in volumetric modular construction: a process which completes projects up to 50% faster than conventional, on-site construction methods (according to McKinsey & Company). Due to being built in VBC’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tracy, California, #HOUSE’s construction process mitigates waste, improves safety, and enhances quality control. Through our partnership, #HOUSE can offer you a superior living experience that is affordable, sustainable, and comfortable.

Are you looking for a reliable, durable, and efficient solar panel module that can power your home for years to come? #HOUSE features the EAGLE 72HM G2, the best-selling module globally for the last 4 years. This module is made by a NYSE-listed and Bloomberg Tier 1 manufacturer, so you can trust its quality and performance on #HOUSE. It also uses the same DuPont protective film as the International Space Station and the Mars Lander, meaning it can easily withstand harsh weather conditions such as heat, humidity, rain, marine environments, and strong winds. Lastly, with a 25 year performance warranty, you can rest assured that your investment will pay off for you (and for our environment) in the long-run.

#HOUSE brings you LiveRoof: a green roof supplied by the local California horticulture firm Florasource. However, LiveRoof doesn’t just look good, LiveRoof does good for your house.

LiveRoof reduces and purifies stormwater runoff, improves indoor air quality, and acts as a natural noise dampening system. Additionally, LiveRoof passively cools the house through evapotranspiration, keeping the indoor temperature (and the AC bill) low.

Make the smart and sustainable choice for your home: own a piece of green paradise!
