Our solution | ME:LU | is a design that encompasses the spirit of the Open up the Box Competition. ME:LU stands for Modular Expandable: Living Unit and is based in a concept of providing a housing module that can work for a single person, a couple or even a family of four. This is where expandability comes into play. Even though the competition allowed us to use only two containers, we have designed expandability into our modular living unit by using a standard shipping container with identical openings. This allows for the interior of the BOX to be reconfigured in various ways and added to the initial TWO containers to provide for more sleeping, bathing, etc. as the needs of the residents change. For instance, a single person or couple may purchase the standard two containers for his/her use. As the family grows, so can the home. With the simple addition of another module, the house can then be adequate for kids, home office / workout area / art studio or even guest rooms with more bathing facilities. There could seemingly be no end to how many containers one could use. These modules could be set up inside of a PUD plan or small housing community where people can have interchangeable unit mixes and flexibility on how they are sited, organized, etc.
