architect adam kalkin combines 12 shipping containers inside a larger structure to create the adriance house
in northern maine. the home uses the containers partially for structure, supporting a glazed glass structure
that envelops the home. the containers flank the two side walls of the home and on the ground floor are
open to reveal the kitchen and the living area. two steel staircases lead up to the second level of containers
where the bedrooms are located. the whole space covers close to 4000 square feet and features a double
height garage door style opening that connects the entire home to the outdoors. kalkin worked with butler
to construct the home. butler has a long history with pre-fabricated architecture, having worked with
buckminster fuller in the 1940’s on his dymaxion deployment unit.
