Minka Homes

We make homes and communities… Minka designs, pre-fabricates and delivers sensibly-sized kit homes that can either stand alone, act as accessory dwelling units or be combined to develop pocket neighborhoods. Our homes are influenced by the clever use of space and materials in centuries-old Japanese architecture.

Our patent-pending fabrication system leverages the accuracy and efficiency of robot-driven manufacturing tools. The result is a flexible kit home in which all load is carried by an exterior portal frame; enabling endless interior configurations. This approach slashes material waste and reduces the energy used by the building.

Global Design, Local Production

We work with a global network of designers, architects, and engineers to deliver solutions to people who seek greater well-being. We use robotics and scalable digital systems to “print” entire homes faster and more efficiently than traditional stick-built houses.

The Future is Independence

“The future of independence-optimized living is a highly distributed, digitally connected, and compact housing that is continuously modified to meet the specific needs of the people living in them.”

– Dr. Bill Thomas
