Well done.... but are they affordable?

If they sell in Monoprix outlets around Paris, they must be, Sue! Once initial set-up of units has been done. That's their big cost, apparently. And they produce year-round, so they reimburse initial costs rapidly.

Apparently, at present they are only selling within a 20 km radius, too - so not running up transport costs. They're attracting investment by Business Angels for extensive expansion ... I don't know if they plan to open other centres around the country, but they have started in the Gulf.

I am guessing, and they are already being used as homes, containers will play an important role in sustainability

A great way to repurpose empty warehouses.
