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)

Prefabricated Steel Framed Duplexes

By | Residential | No Comments

7 prefabricated steel framed single and double storey duplex/ triplex options were produced for use in the client’s various retirement resort projects. This number of types was adequate to achieve homogenous variation across the site without noticeable repetition and preserve a sense of individualism. These duplexes were developed in close collaboration with structural engineers, utilising prefabricated steel frames for low maintenance and fast construction.

This project is a marriage of light industrial and domestic residential. The site is on the border of these two planning zones. There are 10 houses in a row, each with its own warehouse across the road which acts as a visual and acoustic buffer to the light inidustrial zone beyond. A narrow, one-way internal road and a row of front gardens separates the 2 storey volumes of housing and warehousing forming a powerful corridor volume. This is heavily landscaped recreation and circulation zone will balance the industrial warehouse aesthetics of the houses and the warehouses.
