This is our fully prefabricated, modular Pop Blocks house – It uses 4 x 40ft shipping containers, to achieve a 3-bedroom family home with study, 2 bathrooms, large entertainment deck, upper level balcony and roof garden. It has floor to ceiling glass throughout, natural timber veneer internal walls and ceilings, and solid bamboo floors. In this project we have clad the containers  to a large extent, but are interested in peeling away these layers to reveal the structural form and true nature of the project. (Also it was mega-cheap to build)

The clients are particularly interested in preserving small scale businesses and the arts and complementing the existing commercial and cultural value of the area. Ground floor boutique retail tenancies start as small as 13m². These are modular and connect to commercial space above. We utelised extensive solar panels and varied the orientaion, offset and colours of the containers to achieve rich articulation along Mollison Street.A0100 PERPECTIVES _ Layout
