Two architects, Craig Hodgetts and HsinMing Fung from HplusF, a design agency, based in Los Angeles, built a prefabricated home out of eight identical Hummer SUV body shells. Wrapping the gas guzzling monster trucks around the steel skeleton, these architects therefore named this home the HummerHaus.
The hummer's body sturdiness inspired Craig Hodgetts and HsinMing Fung to create such an unusual dwelling. Indeed, in terms of durability and firmness, the metallic components of the huge SUV are the perfect fit for exterior usage. This project provided enough space for OEM refrigeration as well as the 12-volt electrical systems incluing various heating and media components. The HummerHaus project turned to be sustainable due to the usage of geothermal storage tanks, photovoltaic cells, and soy insulation.
The prefabricated house is a concept for now, but such a project inspires to recycle the body shells of old vehicles, at least the larger ones, like Hummer.
