Luxury and pre-fab homes do not usually go together, but in Buenos Aries they sure do! Built for the Casa FOA home design show, the luxury shipping container home makes being eco-friendly glamorous.

The house has four separate spaces, each of which feature a touch of elegance. According to, the luxury shipping container home featured "lighting powered by LEDs, and surfaces covered with bonded leather and wood from sustainably managed forests."

Not to mention a nice rooftop getaway that includes a solar panel to help offset the buildings carbon footprint.
