Adam Kalkin’s Prefab Houses

Adam Kalkin’s firm Architecture + Hygiene makes prefab houses out of recycled shipping containers. Moderately cheap, mobile, and fully recyclable, the Bunny Lane house is located on 3 acres of property in Kalkin’s native New Jersey. With a modern, industrial outer shell, a traditional two-story New Jersey home is contained herein, juxtaposing modern living with the traditional, and adding a dose of quirk and charm.  The Quick House is a prefab kit coming with five modified containers to comprise 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2,000 square feet, fully customizable according to your interior preferences.
