Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects have created a sleek series of emergency homes fit into reclaimed shipping containers that are low cost and high quality. Designboom notes that the permanent proposal, valued at $60,000, is a 60 square meter space.

The container shelters feature a kitchen, bathroom and sleeping areas. They are easy to transport and offer a quality housing solution at an affordable price. The shelters can first be built as a temporary home before being converted into a permanent structure if needed for a long-term basis.

The shipping containers are sturdier than standard temporary housing and can be relocated quickly to different areas where required. They are also stackable, so for smaller site areas, multi-story structures can be created.
