MEKA House by Jason Halter & Christos Marcopoulous


At only 320-square-foot, the MEKA house revolutionizes urban living with a price point of $100 per square foot in New York.

That’s what a pop-up shipping container structure that was displayed in the West Village in 2010 promised Manhattanites. The sleek, 320-square-foot MEKA home, designed by Jason Halter and Christos Marcopoulous and featuring 70% recycled materials, was a strong showing for prefab construction.


It showcases a doubled glazed argon-filled window, which lets in light.


While the MEKA home only offers a single profile, the option to add a deck provides additional space and more flexibility. Each MEKA home arrives via truck nearly complete. From there, it can be built in a matter of days.


Each unit features a customizable kitchen with IKEA products and a slate bathroom. The interior is lined with bamboo.
