On the corner of Waugh and Hyde Park in Houston, Texas, Joey Ramano of Harvest Moon Development has adapted a 20-foot shipping container into a sustainable “green” design for the offices of Mirabeau B. Condominiums. Powered by the solar panels, their last energy bill was NEGATIVE $193.
Their proposed 14 unit condo development boasts an array of sustainable design components from green screens and roofs to energy efficient HVAC systems and a water retention system. The developers are aiming for LEED-Silver rating.
New Living provided the bamboo floors and non-toxic paint for the shipping container.
