Last time we mentioned Reclaimed Space, the company had just finished selling a small home on eBay for about $75,100 (after a bidding war involving several celebrities). But business is good for the Austin-based company that builds homes out of materials reclaimed from deconstructed homes and old projects. This home was recently delivered to its owners and will be used as a custom sewing space in Marfa, Texas.
I thought it would be fun to take a look at this container home designed by Ken Kwok for the distant locale of Malaysia. Using six shipping containers, Anand Bungalows developed the 2,551 square foot project, which includes rainwater harvesting, natural ventilation, water-efficient fixtures, dual-flush toilets, and abundant natural lighting to minimize energy consumption. Check out the rest of these images Kwok was kind enough to share with us.
