• Hummer shells recycled to create prefab home

  • GL1.jpgHummers haven’t really had a green side, ever. These super-large fuel-thirsty “car” is known to gulp down more gas than an average sedan, or probably a couple of them single-handedly. Craig Hodgetts and HsinMing Fung of HplusF Design and Architecture however gave the ever-polluting and drastically fuel-uneconomical Hummer a greener shot to life. They’ve come up with a prefab home made from Hummer shells, that is, the bodies of previously deceased Hummers. Using eight separate Hummer shells, HplusF created what they lovingly call the Hummer House.

    And yes, this could work as an inspiration for architects to come up with better ways to put to rest the bodies of old buses and airplanes and large cars as these and create similarly green prefab homes!
