Have you heard of “Capsule Apartment”? A similar event to that is residential project made of shipping containers. It’s an interesting case. Thanks to its low cost and recyclable, container houses are becoming more and more popular. And thanks to the clever designs, they are no long a sign of narrow, messy and chaotic space. […]
Recycled shipping containers are becoming more and more popular as a viable sustainable building material, and this year’s West Coast Green show house highlights this growing trend. The showroom highlight of this year’s event is Lawrence Group’s SG Blocks Container House, fashion out of five shipping containers and a plethora of other eco-friendly building materials. As a prefab, the home is affordable, cute, and easy to assemble — this one was erected in just 5 hours!
The couple who built this home were so pleased with the reduced costs, the speed of construction, and the positive effect on the environment from using shipping containers that they have started their own company building modular homes from used shipping containers. You can see their designs, mostly of the bridge arrangement (see #4) here at Maison Idekit.
