insta-studio and insta-house
Hamptons, New York
In 2008, MB Architecture embarked on an exploration of very affordable single-family homes and workspaces. And in 2009, we built our first prototype: a double-height artist's studio made of four recycled shipping containers. The project, located in Amagansett, New York, was awarded the American Institute of Architects Peconic Chapter Honor Award for Architecture. Since then, we have taken the double-height, four container model, called the insta_house, to the next level. Completely prefabricated, the two bedroom, two bathroom home includes a full kitchen and a living room; it is fabricated in eight weeks and installed in one day.
Finally, well designed, environmentally conscious pre-fab construction is affordable, very affordable, and now available everywhere in USA.
