Overview: Shipping container homes are no longer news. Lots of architects and clients are inspired to build there new structures after realizing all the advantages they offer although they do require special planning and care.
This container home is located in Corboba, Argentina. It offers its users a total of 195 square meters of living space. The house was built from two metal containers placed in an L-shape.
The ground floor contains all the service area, including the main entrance, the kitchen, pantry, laundry room, bathroom, workshop and warehouse. These functions are divided into two volumes and between them is a gap which houses the living room, the garage and a barbecue area. The second floor contains the private space, namely the bedroom and bathroom areas.
The architect used polyurethane foam for the interior, painted the ceilings with latex and lined the walls with plasterboards to hide all the installations. Polished concrete floors ensure a continuous look throughout all the spaces.
