Together with UN Habitat, it aims to produce homes out of plastic waste and provide sustainable and affordable housing for all.
Affordable and quick to build, these homes are made out of prefabricated and stackable modules.
Technically, the building was just assembled on a site, as all the components were built in a local factory and transported by truck.
The modular design lets these box owners stack them one on top of the other to build a hotel, an office, or a larger family home.
One of the existing towers will become a green tower, containing a vertical public park that showcases modern urban farming concepts.
Each of these small homes is built primarily of CNC-milled formaldehyde-free Oriented Strand Board, lamb's wool insulation and recycled polycarbonate.
Prefabricated in China, each unit comes fully furnished with a private bathroom, kitchenette, armoire, desk and bed, all in 160 square feet.
Comprised of shipping containers that could be organized in different configurations, each unit boasts enough space to house 12 students at the same time.
