The Superior
The Superior is a multi-unit housing project underway in Kitchener-Waterloo.  Originally created for use as student housing, the Superior is one of a set of 5 containers that are combined to create one warm and hospitable dorm-like structure.  Seniors’ residences are being considered and configured in this same way, with individual sleeping quarters and private bathrooms and a communal kitchen and shared living spaces. This projects represents the real potential of building with shipping containers — the ability to flexibly combine containers to create economical housing.
