It is no longer enough to only have green operational practices, Architect and co-owner of the Box House, Malisha Kodituwakku said.

“We believe that sustainability begins with construction, and it was our vision to reduce our ecological footprint by re-purposing discarded shipping containers.

“Although the idea itself wasn’t novel, we wanted to push the boundaries of what had been achieved before. This is where Advantis Engineering stepped up to the challenge. Together, I believe we have created something amazing, within a short time frame and at a competitive cost,” she said.
