to Innovative Washington D.C. Residence Built
From Upcycled Shipping Containers
LOS ANGELES, CA - October 21, 2014 - Renowned Washington D.C.-based architect Travis Price III, FAIA, is known for his distinctively innovative approach to green architecture and modern design. Travis Price Architects alongside Brookland Equity Group designed and built SeaUA, Washington D.C.'s first residential project to utilize sea shipping containers, a growing trend in eco-building. Instead of following traditional LEED® Certification targets, the architects sought to address deeper ecological, design, and affordable housing issues in the city's up-and-coming Brookland neighborhood. Sustainability advocate and project architect Travis Price III, FAIA, designed a new 24-occupant apartment building for recent graduates of the Catholic University of America, where he is a professor.
Travis Price Architects aimed to provide the area with modern affordable housing options for rising millennials with environmentally conscious building principles and practices. The building consists of 4 levels, with each floor serving as one unit with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and shared common areas. The new-build project features a unique pairing of repurposed shipping containers, modern glass elements, and CRL-U.S. Aluminum architectural systems that outfit the new residential building.
"The SeaUA Housing Project speaks to many of the foundational concepts that drive our own product development; innovation, versatility, efficiency, and sustainability," says Gerald Hendrick, President of U.S. Aluminum. "We're proud to have our systems featured in such an ambitious and progressive project."
