Collection of shipping containers: a unique residence of 3 modules
Reuse of different materials is very important nowadays. Especially when it comes to architecture and residential design.
Our readers are probably familiar with many ways to build houses using environmentally friendly recycled materials. But you are sure that you have never seen a building completely assembled … from railway containers. Today we want to tell you about one such project.
Designed by Copenhagen-based studio Arcgency, the WFH cottage consists of three empty 12-meter containers stacked on top of each other, serving as the main modules. The fabricated structure was delivered from Denmark and assembled in China as a test specimen. The total area occupied by it is about 60 sq. meters.
House building meets all modern requirements of convenience, reliability and safety. Reused recycled materials do not harm the environment. The interior surprisingly combines playfulness with minimalism, and the openness of the space creates an invisible connection with the surrounding environment.
Set amid lush vegetation, the home has been designed to produce more energy than it consumes. This is possible with secondary modules, steel frames, a robust bamboo façade, a unique rainwater harvesting system, solar panels and skylights on a green roof, and solid paving surrounds. This is fully consistent with the energy policy adopted in Europe.
The building is incredibly stable, which is felt in almost everything. It has its own deep-water well, from which water is pumped. The internal walls are finished with quality wood and painted with eco-friendly paint. The neat interior is finished in immaculate white with splashes of vibrant hues. Colorful carpets create a sense of comfort and a reminder of minimalist yet stylish Scandinavian design.
There is absolutely nothing annoying and provocative here – just a living space flooded with sunlight. The centerpiece on the ground floor is occupied by a two-level living area, combined with a dining room and kitchen. From here you can easily go to other rooms and to the courtyard. The other two modules house four bedrooms that can be used as a nursery, parental, or guest room, as well as a study.
Each room has one window. In order to provide better illumination and openness, the interior walls are made of glass, and all interior spaces are visible through them. In a similar way, the architects created in their project a close relationship between rooms and the surrounding nature. Through large transparent doors, natural light generously penetrates inside, and the owners can admire the beauty of the picturesque area.
Thanks to such containers, you can quickly and easily build any cottage, for example, like this one, and even a multi-apartment town house. These modular designs can be delivered anywhere and installed in a very short time. High factory readiness is the main feature of experimental design development.
The building is completely environmentally friendly and safe. It meets the most essential requirements of world standards. The energy class is 50% lower than the building requirements.
The WFH system, patented by the Danish Institute of Technology, according to experts, will help solve the housing problem of densely populated China.
Any customer can independently choose their own version of the house via the Internet, including the facade, materials, decoration, arrangement of premises, etc. As a result of the selected models, you can get a minimalist modern architecture and a spacious, bright interior.
Of course, it is unlikely that such a structure will be warm enough in cold winter, but using it in the summer season may well be comfortable.
