Plant Prefab


Santa Monica, CA

Plant's award-winning design studio creates beautiful homes that combine world-class architecture with an unparalleled commitment to healthy and sustainable construction.

Pre-dating Plant Prefab, the studio was founded in 2006 as LivingHomes. Our first project, designed by Ray Kappe, FAIA, was the first home ever to receive LEED for Homes Platinum certification. We've since completed dozens more LEED Platinum and Gold-certified projects, making us one of the most experienced designers of homes at the highest levels of LEED certification.

When we founded Plant Prefab in 2016, the studio was renamed the Plant Design Studio. The experienced team now supports all Plant clients, providing architectural design services while overseeing the development of all new standard home designs.

Our projects have earned significant industry recognition, including the AIA’s top sustainable award, Green Builder Magazine’s Home of Year, Business 2.0's “World’s 11 Coolest Products,” Businessweek’s “Architectural Wonders of the World,” and the Sustainable Quality Awards Grand Prize.
