According to Designboom.com, Arcgency and worldFLEXhome have teamed up together to create a pre-fab home that exceeds the international environmental standards for an “active home”, or environmentally sustainable home. The 3-bedroom home is made from 3 containers and is adaptable to different environments including earth-quake prone areas.
Some of the sustainability features include recycled containers, bamboo siding, rainwater collection from both the roof and the pavement around the home and a solar-cell green roof.
This particular home is located in Wuxi, China. It was finished in 2012. For more pictures of the construction of the container, check out arcgency’s website.
