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
