This project is a prototype of a three-dimensional modular and industrialized house, built with four 40-foot shipping containers. The aim of this project is to build a low-cost architect’s housing with high focus on environmental issues. With an industrial approach, the construction time is reduced, as the prices are getting down.

Each volume represents a very simple design: living area on the ground floor. The crossing of the two boxes provide a covered entrance and a carport.

Snøhetta’s prize-winning design was characterized by the jury as having strongly identifiable themes that tie the building to its culture and place while also presenting an unusual and unique expression that was in many ways new and innovative. The project developed a highly complex program into a simple general plan that integrated both a practical and intuitive sculptural approach to modeling the exterior form. Its low slung form became a link within the city rather than a divisive sculptural expression. Its accessible roof and broad, open public lobbies make the building a social monument rather than a sculptural one.
