The Push Button House is exactly that: it starts as a shipping container until a button is pushed, and it turns into a house. Motorized walls unfold like a flower, revealing a fully functional house, complete with refined, understated furnishings.
Adam Kalkin built it within a standard industrial shipping container that takes 90 seconds to expand. At the push of a button, the shipping container transforms into a five-room home with kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room and library. Built from recycled materials and using hydraulic cylinders that are controlled by a computer system, with the push of a button the shipping crate transforms into a “house”.
