Description: Group 41 Incorporated Architects are based in San Fransisco and are known for creating uber green and ultra affordable homes. Linterna is the leg of the company where shipping containers are used as a responsible alternative to majority of their most popular designs. This is an elegant, waste reducing, affordable and simple to build shipping container home. I guess you could say that this is an economically achievable alternative home solution, without having to pass on the modern and elegant housing parts.
Number of Shipping Containers Used: Three used shipping containers are used for all designs by Group 41.
Credits to: Linterna
Benefits: The fact that you can attain such an amazing home out of 3 simple shipping containers is a massive benefit in itself. Of course you may need the help of an Architectural firm, but this particular example proves that is more than possible to have little material – yet create so, so much, both for the eye and for the environment.
