An Affordable and Adaptable Home

A Loq•kit house is assembled from three types of components: modular metal frame, modular infill, and modular snap-cladding. Component sizes for each type are regulated by Loq•kit’s alternating grid sequence. Italicized parts are not shown in this drawing. For smaller components, such as the various clips, seats, weather seals, and locks, refer to snap-lock parts details. For a complete description of all components and their assemblies, the patent specification and drawings may be viewed and downloaded here.
