Morton Loft is a residential space converted from a former parking garage. This situation lends itself to LOT-EK‘s ethos, which is to integrate organic and manufactured materials from the contemporary urban landscape into their design. LOT-EK often uses prefabricated objects and invents new functions for the byproducts of industrial and technological culture. For the Morton Loft, they cut a petroleum trailer tank in two and incorporated the pieces as a sleeping area within the loft. One piece placed horizontally on a mezzanine level creates the bedrooms, and one placed vertically holds two bathrooms, one atop the other.
LOT-EK’s Continer Home Kit is based on the concept that, around the world, there could be colonies of standard container docks where an urban nomad population could arrive and plug in its module houses. LOT-EK’s Container Home Kit is a prefab house in which containers can be linked to make a 2 or 4-bedroom house, while its Container Mall is like a vertical flea market, in which each unit is occupied by a different retailer.
