Team China

Team China designed the Y Container house around six recycled shipping containers.

A substantial 8.8-kilowatt photovoltaic system includes a single inverter and 42 panels.

When domestic hot-water demand is met, a solar thermal collector on the roof stores heat in order to warm a series of small water tubes under the floor for thermal radiation.

As part of the design, the team’s engineers integrated the house’s HVAC and hot-water system.

The house's Y shape gave the interior a more spacious feeling.
