Illy Push Button House

Illy Push Button House

Dec 19, 2007

Illy, as in the coffee? Turns out yes. The Illy push button house is a complete home built within a shipping container. What differentiates the push button house from other examples of shipping container architecture is the fact that it can expand in 90 seconds controlled by a kitchen mounted computer and hydraulics

We are big fans of the coffee and appreciate how they are using design and architecture to promote ideas of sustainability but we ask the question...what happens if it rains? If you are in New York, you can visit the Push Button House at the Time Warner Center from November 29 – December 29, 2007.
