Bruce Watson, Director Interior Architecture has recently been featured in the UNSW magazine Uniken:

“For the past three years, Bruce been the chief investigator on an industry-funded research project to design compact dwellings modelled on steel shipping containers. These unconventional structures have the potential to form low-cost apartment-style accommodation and configured to create communities – a practice that’s already taking off in several European cities, says Watson.

The project, coordinated by the Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living, is a partnership between the UNSW faculties of Built Environment and Engineering, and Nova Deko, a manufacturer of modular, shipping container – style houses, or pods.”
