The MEKA home is certainly attractive, durable and sustainably built with mostly recycled materials. The founder, Michael de Jong states, “Many prospective homeowners want to avoid the hassle, wait time and hidden costs of traditional construction. No one wants to wait a year and then find out the price of materials and laborers have increased by a third or more. No one wants to deal with unreliable contractors or builders.” Each shipping container is paneled in cedar wood over a steel frame shipping container, with doubled glazed argon-filled windows, a bamboo interior, slate bathroom, and 100% cedar cladding. Its a great architectural building measures just for about 320 square foot but the house able to capture luxurious, modern living within an undemanding and unexpected construction. Meka World

This two story house is composed of six standard containers arranged in a staggered stack. Holes are cut out of the sides of the containers and even the large cargo doors are used on one end as an entrance to form the access to the floor and ceiling windows. The main environmentally friendly feature is a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of the house along with a small-scale wind turbine to produce renewable energy for the home. As the home was built inside a warehouse and hasn’t seen the light of day, unfortunately those systems didn’t really get tested out. The house also use Tyvek HomeWrap, Tyvek Enercor Wall, which is another permeable membrane and radiant barrier and Energain panels that act as thermal mass for the building. The house is only 140 sq meters (1,500 sq ft) and was built as exploratory attempt at design and construction. Design by Studio Astori De Ponti Associati

Landhouse is prefabricated home constructed of SIPs (structural insulated panels) and feature sweeping green roofs that residents can treat as their own personal meadows. This energy-efficient house has flexibility that goes well with what home owner wants. In spite of the very insulated basic structure, sustainability can be improved upon by installing ground source energy, heat exchangers, solar panels and more. A beautiful example of a completed Landhouse is Swinomish housing project which is built with the idea taken from the Swinomish Tribal People of Fidalgo Island Washington State and the goal is to construct an environmentally sensitive scheme.

There are many things a container can do. One of them is being an art studio as demonstrated by Maziar Behrooz Architecture. This simple design consists of two 9’-6” x 40’ x 8’ shipping containers that are capable of prividing 700 sq m space and perched over a 9’ foundation wall/cellar. Large part of the floor is cut so that it is possible to lower the floor for additional height as the ceiling. The resulting floor is lower and can be accessed via staircase that can also serve as a transitional space for viewing art work. The upper level provides a more intimate work area and a sitting area. See the floor-plan drawing for more detail about this house.
