Eco Home & Architecture Office by Intexture

Houston architects Russell and Rame Hruska, owners of Intexure, wanted to keep their work close to home, so they built a live/work building with an apartment upstairs and their studio on the ground floor. Passive solar design was combined with butterfly, rainwater-collecting roof, daylighting, energy efficiency strategies and sustainable materials to create a simple and modern space for life.

Stacked Shipping Container Office by Daiken-Met Architects

Daiken-Met was having trouble finding office space to lease, so they decided to build their own temporary office out of stacked shipping containers on a leased plot of land. Located in Gifu, Japan, the Sugoroku Office can be moved in the future if necessary and provides space for an apartment on the top floor.
