Infill Container Home by LWA

LWARC

We’re bringing you back-to-back container home coverage here with this home on an infill lot in the eastern hills above San Francisco Bay.  Designed by Leger Wanaselja Architecture, the project required three insulated containers to create a cozy, two-bedroom house.  Two forty-foot containers were stacked on one side and the third was cut in the middle.  The split containers were also stacked on the other side.  The three containers are brought together with a large, glassy atrium that spans both the first and second floors.  It’s a simple design that shows what’s possible with innovative home construction.  Make sure to check out the construction images, too.

Green Container Condos in Early Planning for Detroit

Exceptional Green Living on Rosa Parks

A Detroit-based group has a container project in mind for a blighted chunk of land near Wayne State University.  News of the project hit the press this morning and local citizens didn’t quite know what to expect (see comments).  The project is currently being called "Exceptional Green Living on Rosa Parks" and would feature containers stacked four high with windows and doors cut out into various places.  In total, the 17-unit condo project would have units ranging in size from 960 – 1,920 and price from $100k – $190k.  Pretty good price for a modern, green pad.
