Push Botton House 1 / Adam Kalkin

Adam Kalkin’s Push Button House 1 demonstrates how industrial products can repurposed as architectural elements, or as entire homes. The Push Button House was originally displayed at Art Basel Miami in 2005, and uses a standard shipping container as the structure of a home.

Kalkin’s concept uses hydraulic power to lift and lower the sides of the shipping container, vastly expanding the usable living space. His design incorporates bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchenette, and living area. Though not actually viable for use as a home, Kalkin’s Push Button House is one of many shipping container concepts that utilize an object that might otherwise lie dormant.

Seen at SwipeLife. More images after the break. .gallery { margin: auto; } .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 100%; } .gallery img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }
