Last week, a newly completed IQ Haus by DNA European Design Studio was on display at Dwell on Design in Los Angeles, California. The container home, clad in a contemporary application of Douglas Fir, was enjoyed by conference attendees and could have been the "coolest thing" there.
IQ Haus, according to the website, was formed to "offer a beautiful high-end home that is cutting edge, strong, luxurious, green, and affordable." These homes can be used as an office, retreat, studio, rental property, or off-grid abode.
In terms of pricing, IQ Haus starts at $65 a square foot, according to Modern Luxury San Diego. The price is pretty surprising considering its California origins and small size.
These green prefabs start at 320 square feet and come with low-E glass, ceramic paint insulation, a rain shower bathroom, heating and air conditioning, and other modern amenities.
