About Sustain
At Sustain Design Studio our team is committed to building environmentally innovative prefabricated homes. Created by award-winning architects from Altius Architecture, our miniHome is an ideal blend of contemporary design, affordability and function.

Our work is internationally recognized for its contemporary design and ecological vision. Founded in 2002, Sustain Design Studio continues to be a leader in the environmental prefab market. Our first effort, the miniHome SOLO, was promoted by legendary environmentalist David Suzuki and was featured in O, The Oprah Magazine.

Based in Toronto, Sustain Design Studio works in partnership with Altius Architecture to capitalize on existing expertise in design and building science. Our relationship with Altius also allows for the research and development of high-end experimental projects that can then be tested and applied to affordable modular solutions for consumers.
