By • Feb 2, 2011

The Crossbox by French Architect firm Clément Gillet Architectes is an eco-friendly prefabricated single family residence (1,120 sq ft) located in Pont Péan, France.

The house has been made by recycling old shipping containers and making them livable.

The CrossBox project by CG Architectes:

““This project is a prototype of a Three-dimensional modular and industrialized house, built with four 40’shipping containers. The aim of this project is to build a low cost architect’s housing with high focus on environmental issues. With a industrial approach, the construction time is reduced, as the prices are getting down.

Each volume presents a very simple design: living area on the ground floor, and three bedrooms on the first floor. The crossing of the two boxes provides a covered entrance and a carport.”
