Eco-Pak is a New Home in a Container
James Green is an aircraft structural engineer who found a creative solution when designing a home for a remote site in Turkey (that wouldn’t allow a concrete foundation). Green decided to structure the house around a shipping container with an extended skeleton of removable frames. Seeing more potential, he then patented the idea and teamed up with architect Matthew Coates of Coates Design Architects in order to deploy “Eco-Pak ” as modular and sustainable housing.
