MODULAR DESIGNS

NOW Housing manufactures affordable housing on a mass production scale that presently is unmatched. Our units are built to stand the test of time against climate, tenant turnover and aggressive use.

Private and/or public developers now have a cost-effective housing solution that is attractive to its residents and community. Housing units may be stacked together to form a complex enabling optimal affordable housing in a single development area.

The following are representations of the work we have produced and plan to produce in the near future.

Duo-Suite

NOW Housing - Duo-Suite

The recent addition of our Duo-Suite provides the greatest amount of private space in a limited space. While meeting Ontario Building Code’s requirements for bedroom space, this module provides both a bathroom and kitchen in an unshared space. We designed this piece for clients seeking private spaces for sleeping, but currently offering additional community spaces.

The above displays two separate living spaces accessible only through each’s respective front door. The suites back on to one another through a bathroom wall, which is fire-resistant.

Studio

NOW Housing - Studio for modular living

The Studio is a self-contained unit that offers an efficient solution to comfortably housing individuals on a limited footprint. A bedroom, full kitchen, bathroom, en suite laundry and dinette set provide all necessary amenities for comfortable living, either for temporary or long term housing.

Single

NOW Housing Single Bedroom

The single bedroom unit offers more livable space than a Studio. A spacious living room provides an area suitable for reading and relaxing on a full size couch set. In addition to being suitable for an individual, this design is well suited to couples. The full kitchen, en-suite laundry and bathroom ensure daily living comforts are available.

Multi-Bedroom (Many options available)

NOW Housing - Multibedroom (5 bed, 2 bath)

The multi-bedroom units are available, either as low as two bedrooms up to five. For configurations with three or more bedrooms, an additional bathroom can be added to ensure resident convenience. Strategically placed furniture and a space-saving dinette table make this unit seem bigger. This configuration is best suited to families in their own private space or housing many tenants with shared resources (kitchen, bathrooms, laundry facilities).
