PRO/con: Package Homes

Site—Typical suburban lots
Program—Modular housing system from shipping containers and miscellaneous infill systems
Completion—Fall 2000

In a time of unstable family structures and shifting power relations in a group environment, the agility of modern domesticity is tested with these designs. The package homes question the user to spatially express their personal understandings of domestic traditions and transactions. The homes can also be personalized to fit the needs of each family environment. Clients are able to choose different packages that make up unique components to the container homes.
