Recycled Eco House by Chilean Architects: wood pallets + shipping containers

Manifesto House, designed by Chilean architects and sustainable construction firm Infiniski, is a man-made marvel! Although it’s not totally prefabricated, this home in Curacavi, Chile is built using premade materials to allow for quick, cost-effective and sustainable construction. At a cost of just 79,000€, this eco home is made of two 40-ft. and two 20-ft. repurposed shipping containers. Recycled wooden pallets cladding the home’s exterior not only give the house a cool look and feel, but they also provide natural cooling via shade and ventilation. Cool in more ways than one, this modern recycled home features spacious, airy interiors separated from the outdoors by sliding floor-to-ceiling windows. Interiors are largely open concept, and feature a sleek minimalist interior design that’s as simple as the home’s concept as a whole. On the other side of the glass walls, an outdoor entertaining area sheltered by a large awning offers an al fresco living space. The sustainable house boasts geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling. Infiniski
