M is an ecologically conscious design collective comprised of professionals including engineers, fabricators, building contractors and installers working together to create sustainable products including but not limited to buildings, furnishings and a variety of functional interactive designs.
The M Cube was conceived and created in 1998 with the intent to design a building with key attributes: • prefabricated.• modular • transformable • sustainable • affordable, low-maintenance, and construction ease/expediency. The first M Cube prototype was constructed in three months during the year 2000 and is one of the early pilot products for the collective.

M Cube models utilize sliding moveable/removable lightweight polycarbonate daylight panels which allows for easily compartmentalizing large space into smaller live/work spaces. This project utilizing the M cube Model S3 (3K SF steel model) demonstrates the advantages of the modular systems ability to create 1K SF 2 BDRM 2 BA live/work space per floor.

300SF • 2BDRM/2BA
This project also comprised of three cube Model S3 further demonstrates the advantages of the modular systems ability to compartmentalize creating additional rooms. The micro cube can be ideal as an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), guest/pool house, or any situation where additional space is needed. In addition, replacing conventional bed(s) with day bed(s) can provide additional live/work options.

3K SF 4BDRM/4BA x3
This project is comprised of the M cube Model S3 x3 (3K SF steel models) demonstrates the advantages of the modular systems ability to repeat and create additional square feet.

5K SF 4BDRM/4BA
The M Cube modular system accommodates many scenarios because of the ability to increase, decrease or reconfigure in size as shown in this 5K SF example. In this case the live/work area is 1200 SF. The plan also features a 200 SF master bedroom with bath plus an additional bedroom with bath per floor.
M CUBE C
3K SF 3BDRM/3BA
The M Cube modular system continues to be a flagship of innovative sustainable design. This M cube concrete Model C3 demonstrates the ability to sustain our natural environmental occurrences in this case concrete is appropriate in most all areas in example, flood, fire and noise.
M Designs continues to expand interests toward globally conscious endeavors for the future of our living planet and as a commitment to our global environmental consciousness we take pride in creating quality products yet always strive to maintain a fair work ethic. In addition, we offer our products to charitable non profit organizations such as the “Make It Right” foundation for Katrina victims in New Orleans and ‘Habitat For Humanity”.
What Our Customers are Saying
We love our house. It’s stylish and sustainable. Thank you for your beautiful creation.Beverly Mattingdale
I can’t imagine living in any other conventional home or building than our M cube. We’re living in the future.Lawrence Springfield
We love living in the cube. A house is about being comfortable and once inside It’s like being in a womb.Josh Rosen
While living in the cube I once experienced an earthquake and it felt like a ocean liner sailing smoothly through all of the movement. I felt safe and secure. It’s a pleasure living in the cube.
Cube living is one of the most comfortable experiences I’ve ever encountered. My first night I experienced the most interesting and vivid dreams… I can honestly say it’s an absolute dream to live in the cube.
