It may not look like it, but the WFH House was constructed out of old shipping containers. While similar creations embraced the industrial aesthetic of such materials, the WFH House is much more slick and modern. A patented modular building system, it is nevertheless an eco-conscious design that can be adapted to local challenges around the world such as climatic or earthquake issues.

The WFH House was designed by Arcgency, Esbensen and Teknologisk Institut for World Flex Home. It is the first prefabricated housing system that meets the demands in the international environment-building-standard, Active House, according to Arcgency founder Mads Moller.

Overall, the WFH House is based on Nordic values, which is minimalist, playful, human and natural.
