The concept combines pre-engineered building and energy conservation features to maximize efficiency and cost savings, while offering architectural design flexibility and variation. The project is composed of steel components, including six shipping containers, a Butler pre-engineered building, a 10,000-gallon water tank, a shade canopy with integrated steel framing system that provides strength and protection against earthquakes, fire and wind, as well as large window and door openings to maximize natural light and ventilation.
An adjustable steel frame and shade system reduces heat and glare on the building by 50%, and a solar breezeway, shown at right, allows for plug-in attachment of future solar electric and water heating panel arrays.
Movable modules use gray-water irrigation and are planted with native desert plants and sedums to absorb heat and dust. By combining high-efficiency and mass-produced modular construction methods with innovative design in one of the harshest climate zones in North America, we have developed a low-cost, sustainable housing system that can be transported and quickly erected in most places. A proprietary steel framing system reinforces and ties the container modules together to resist earthquake and wind forces.


Large areas of the steel walls were removed to open the interiors to sweeping desert views, natural daylight and ventilation. The 18-foot-high stairwell is sheathed in recycled, corrugated metal with a vertical slit window facing east to distribute morning light evenly across the interior walls. A 160-square-foot green roof made of 4-by-4-foot native plant modules is placed on the second floor shade framing. A recycled 3,000-gallon tank collects rainwater off the metal roofs to irrigate the breezeway landscaping. The shaded breezeway also provides a protected outdoor room as an extension of the interior.
The typical housing project in San Bernardino County takes one to three months to go through entitlement and permitting; however, our project was approved and permitted in just one week.


It allows for large openings in the container walls and forms a framework between the residence and photo studio.
A 10,000-gallon tank stores the home's potable water and emergency water in case of fire.
