About Villa

Villa is a homebuilding platform that focuses on building prefab homes in “missing middle” infill locations. Villa uses an asset-light approach by partnering with factories to build homes based on Villa’s designs. With a focus on modern design, quality construction, and affordability, Villa is creating a scalable solution that can meet the need for more attainable housing production across America.

Villa is unique because they leverage the manufacturer-supplier network established around the manufactured home industry to deliver a more sustainable, cost-efficient, and reduced cycle-time product. This allows the company to scale, meeting a balance of standardization and variability for customer needs in ADU and low-rise housing. Villa holds great promise to move beyond California into other regions and I look forward with anticipation to their story unfolding.
