The RDP House is an environmentally friendly project put together by architect Daniel Moreno Flores that utilizes recycled shipping containers to create a sustainable abode. The house is located in a grassy field in Tomeca, Mexico and it offers a rustic home built through interconnected containers, recycled metal and glass to create affordable housing. The repurposed material and shipping units greatly reduces the cost of the home, while simultaneously providing a functional and utilitarian space for consumers to live.

Shipping containers offer a range of possibilities when it comes to design due to the strength of the box and the materials used as well as its large-scale size. The RDP house features a series of the containers arrange side-by-side as well as stacked to create different rooms. The containers are held in place using concrete platforms and added glass provides windows and natural light.
