This project is the first building completed in Portland, Oregon built under the “Living Building Challenge”.  The building incorporates several unique features one of which includes used shipping containers as an integral part of the project design.  A water reclamation system was installed in the building to capture rain water and reuse it as gray water for the toilets and irrigation systems.  Photovoltaic solar panels capture sun rays and convert them to A/C power that will is used in the building and directed back into the electrical grid.
