2 Greenhouses & 3 Containers Turned Into A Unique Dream Home...

Backyard Solar Power Revolution...

Twenty years ago architect Patrick Partouche wanted to build an affordable home for his family on an undeveloped piece of land in an industrial zone next to a rail line. Having experience in industrial buildings, Partouche knew the materials and designs were more affordable than comparables for residential construction.

The Lille (France)-based architect used sheet metal from the auto industry to create a main home and surrounded it with two huge agriculture greenhouses to help with climate control (they help heat the home in fall, winter and spring; and can be opened for ventilation during summer). Inside each greenhouse he placed a twenty-foot, insulated, shipping container to be used as satellite rooms: they have served as the children’s bedrooms and are now office/workshop space.

The total cost of the construction was 100,000 euros (50,000 for the main home and 50,000 for the two greenhouses and containers) for a 450-square-meter home (4,843 square feet) that requires little heating and reflects Partouche’s love of industrial materials. Check it out below…
