Architects Craig Hodges and HsinMing Fung joined forces in 1984 to create their agency HplusF. Since then, the pair have gone on to apply their stylistic skill to the UCLA library, Hollywood Bowl, Egyptian Theater and a number of other works of architectural art. HplusF also tackles unique installations and showpieces, one of which involves the now-departed Hummer brand.

What could easily be a luxury apartment in the video game Fallout 3 is in fact HplusF's HummerHaus. Eight identical Hummer body shells wrap around a a steel skeleton to form a living space like no other.

Of course, this is merely a concept, but it's a rather interesting one. Could old vehicles be rehabbed into affordable living spaces? Could the Hummer body have a new lease on life after it was cut from the General Motors family?

Check out the gallery below to see how HplusF lays out its HummerHaus.

      When I said I wanted Hummers all over my house this isn't exactly what I had in mind.

      Finally there's a good use for those things.

      Just like the repurposing of old shipping containers, this is a sound idea to make up for that item's past transgressions against society. However, the stigma of association would be too embarrassing for some to stomach. Just recycle them...dust to dust.

      Sounds like we found a use for those of hundreds (possibly thousands) of leftover and used Hummers on car lots everywhere. At the auto mall an hour from me, which sells like 10 brands, they had like a 20 Hummers on the lot overshadowing all the shiny new Lexus CTs and BMW X3s that everybody and their mothers seem to be buying in droves.

      Boring! I still prefer a house made entirely of PT Cruisers. Then I'll hire someone to set it on fire.

      This is pretty clever. The trucks take on an interesting, abstract nature when fused together like this. I'd live in that "Bachelor" suite... Also, nice Fallout 3 mention. One of my favorite games ever!

      Looks do-able. But how much is this "re-purposed" home gonna cost? A used Hummer probably averages $40k-$50k. It looks like they needed 6-7 Hummers to do the layout in the article so maybe $240k-$300k per unit? No fcukg way!
