Three Squared

We recently had the opportunity to capture a unique space in Detroit. Three Squared Inc. has built a model center on Trumbull that will serve as the basis for their upcoming developments. The space may look like yet another modern urban dwelling, but what sets it apart are the materials used to construct the building: recycled shipping containers! The main 2-unit building is created from 6 shipping containers and each of the 3 floors have a shipping container patio/balcony for a total of 9 containers (or Three Squared...). What is really amazing is that it doesn't have a overly industrial feel. In fact, the space has a warmth and hominess to it that comes from the detail in the finishes.

The model center is finished and they expect to break ground shortly on their next multi-unit project. The benefits of shipping container construction include shorter construction time (the model was framed in just over 6 hours), sustainable materials, durability, energy efficiency, lower cost, and more. Watch the Detroit skyline for the next Three Squared development - it may just pop up overnight!

Laundry Room Envy

If a home was ever sold based on the laundry room alone, this would be the house. Walk through it virtually to see what we mean. This is also our largest scanned space to date, with over 8000 square feet (including the garage). With such a large space to explore, it's the perfect home for a game of hide-and-seek! See if you can find me.
