01. ESLICE Prefab Homes Inspired by Loaves of Bread

“A good loaf of bread is what inspired this traditional, yet narrow prefab home. The ESLICE home is a Latvian creation designed to satisfy the desire for high quality of living, but at a reasonable cost. As the designers explain, ESLICE is exactly like a hearty piece of rye bread – satisfying, affordable, comforting, and simple. The thin profile home takes design ideas from traditional Latvian barns, uses machine cut wood to build the small structure and comes delivered completely furnished and ready to go.” (inhabitant)

“Thanks to the New York Post article we noticed that this project Pionen White Mountain, which we featured November 24, 2008, is indeed the WikiLeaks Headquarters. Pionen – White Mountain designed by Albert France-Lanord Architects is housed in a former 1,200 sqm Cold War bunker (originally built as a World War II bunker); an amazing location 30 meters down under the granite rocks of the Vita Berg Park in Stockholm.” (archfdaily)
