Meka, Toronto-based housing company, was created by three friends, one a designer, one an architect, and the other a developer, looking to create well designed, alternative dwellings that could be made and sold at affordable prices. Beyond aspirations for typical prefabricated reasoning, and after years of extensive online market research, they found myriad examples from which to compare and consider. Aware of the sheer volume of shipping container buildings existing around the world, and of the many individuals and companies that had built incredible varieties and styles of this particular typology, still they found no easy way to order or procure them.
‘Meka’ (an acronym for modular, environmental, kinetic, assembly), is a combination of their design considerations with a manufacturing and ordering solution that delivers the most cost savings available on the planet. The result was to produce the most luxurious living spaces with a clean modern sensibility, at super affordable prices.
All 4 models are insulated R40 in the floors walls and roofs. The building can be placed in cold climates as well as moderate to hot climates. The insulation will be sufficient for most climates.
