As this stunning build is made from shipping containers it is easily transportable by land and sea so the user can move the house if they felt necessary. The house has been designed and adapted to tackle the local challenges in Wuxi, China, such as climate and earthquakes. The designers of the house chose to go for Bamboo as the main material due to its beneficial properties of fast growth and availability eradicating the problem of rationing materials.
