Old shipping containers used as the structural framework for the WFH- House. This is not just recycling; This is upcycling!

The WFH concept is a modular concept, based on a design principle, using 40 feet high cube standard modules as structural system. The structure can be adapted to local challenges such as climatic or earthquake issues. Online customization-tools give clients the possibility to decide their own version of the house concerning layout, size, facade, interior etc. The configuration happens within a predefined framework that will ensure high architectural value and quality of materials. Building-components are prefabricated and on site construction can be limited.

Interesting facts:

- The first prefabricated housing system that meets the demands in the international environment-building-standard, Active House.
- The structure can be configured to meet many different purposes, multi storey, townhouses, cluster houses or individual villas.
- Top class indoor climate, low energy consumption and environmentally sound materials.
- Very short construction-period.
Demountable for recycling or relocation.
- Cost competitive in comparison with other green houses.
