REOSE SUSTAINABLE PROTOTYPE CONTAINERIZED HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
7 November 2011
A unique project is rising up in the Lakeview Neighborhood of New Orleans. A joint project of Oceansafe, the Regen Group, Woodward Design+Build and C&G Construction, this project features the Sunshower SSIP Model designed by Judith Kinnard and Tiffany Lin, winners of the 2010 REOSE Sustainable Design Competition. A single shipping container can pack the entire kit required to build this home within. The uniqueness of the REOSE home building kit is that it will include all the metarials required to achieve a safe, healthy, comfortable and enduring level of building performance that is also extremely sustainable. In addition, only minimal tools are required to construct it. Finally, the house is both hurricane proof, can withstand a 7.2 richter scale earthquake and is fire and termite resistant.
