Is it a shipping container converted into a modern small house? Nope, it’s a 550 sq. ft. modern prefabricated house located in Alicante, Spain.

Combining the collaborated efforts of architect, Daniel Martí i Pérez of DMP Arquitectura and designers, Jurgen Van Weereld and Karin Giesberts,  they created and built this house.

They decided to build this prototype prefab house to test their ideas for more sustainable and affordable housing. By using light weight prefabricated panels they help speed up the construction process by not having to use heavy equipment or tons of labor.

To keep cost low they went with a rectangular shaped house which at first I thought it was a shipping container.

In this small space they managed to fit a master bedroom, second room/study, bathroom and kitchen. With of course plenty of outdoor space for hanging out or dining al fresco.
