Architects Jared Levy and Gordon Stott have been building homes for California’s rich and famous since 2004. Their award-winning work had graced the covers of Dwell, Time, Newsweek, and Builder. Their designs were also the first modern prefab homes published in Architectural Digest.
But their dream was unfulfilled. Jared and Gordon also wanted to address California’s housing crisis that affects mostly middle and low-class citizens. They founded Los Angeles-based, Connect Homes which has constructed over 80 sustainable prefabs across California, ranging from single-family homes to big houses up to 3,200 square feet. With former Apple executive Greg Leung as its CEO, Connect Homes aims to transform the U.S. homebuilding industry with affordable, modern, and sustainable prefabs. The company has raised over $27 million in funding, including a $5 million investment from Brick & Mortar Ventures.
