In 2018, the Woolsey Fire devasted Malibu. With many residents without shelter, local architect Doug Burdge and builder Nate Garnero devised a solution to convert shipping containers into temporary tiny homes. The Bauhaus-inspired shelters feature a sleek fire-resistant facade made from aluminum panels. Its 160-square-foot interior is equally as clean and minimal with a hidden murphy bed that includes a drop-down desk, a kitchen area, and recessed lighting. Doors fold open to uncover expansive glazing while also creating covered outdoor spaces. Both interior and exterior finishes are completely customizable and can include off-grid systems. The Buhaus will be available for order in the spring of 2020.
