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)

Future City Architects is launching Pop Blocks, a new off-the-shelf, prefabricated, modular granny flat. You can customise your order from a single 15m² module for a backyard art studio, up to a 3-storey apartment with custom colours, cladding, solar panels and roof gardens.


Pop Blocks are the most affordable alternative to renovation, and can be rented out, providing immediate and very high return on investment.
