Container for living

Residential / Sep - Oct 2016

Container for living

This home comprises four containers of different colours that overlap one another and are arranged crosswise. These containers are deliberately functionalised for secondary needs such as a hobby room, mostly because the space is limited and thermal comfort is below average. However, they have fixed several additional layers on the roof to lower the temperature. These include installing wire mesh for plant propagation and glass wool in the lumber ceiling made from pine wood.
