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.

Air Shield

Overview: Taking a baby outside for a ride in a stroller to breathe some fresh air may not be a best idea if you are living in a big city. For this reason I created a baby stroller with safe microclimate. This invention lets baby breath fresh air which is constantly flowing through the filters into the cabin. To decrease a distance between parent and a child , which appears because of the shield, there would be microphone installed inside. You could mute sounds from outside if baby is sleeping. The shield have more benefits, it protects from ultraviolet rays. It is a product made for kids, to make them healthier just by traveling in a futuristic baby stroller.

Overview: Infinitas is the 300 foot (91.5 meter) yacht concept. The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The design’s main inspiration comes from the symbol for infinity which has been abstractly expressed within the yacht’s elevation.

The two major features of the yacht asserted by this closed loop infinity symbol are achieved by carving out stern and mid section elliptical deck constructs.

A central structural “spine” holds the loop together allowing the yacht’s superstructure to seamlessly flow within itself. The added benefit of “infinity” is the realignment of traditional functional areas.

Within this realignment, the main deck living room, and dining room are detached. The dining room moves forward and is separated from the living room by a massive pool deck.

This new deck location allows for the first time, direct access to dining room and kitchen for expanded activities, in combination with the living room/salon.

There are three methods to traverse the pool deck. First is a direct outside bridge / walkway which bisects the pool itself. This walkway has underwater openings in its support system, allowing swimmers to dive from one side to another. The pool has the option of being covered for larger venue needs.

The second method of crossing the pool deck is an overhead sky bridge which connects to the main stairs and elevator. The “sky” bridge is clear glass floor and ceiling allowing natural light to penetrate the pool below.

The third method is through a lower level lounge which features glass portals into the pool.
The main level contains the two aforementioned decks, living room, dining room, kitchen, storage, and bow deck (with helicopter pad).

The interior design of the space, and others, reflects an intense minimalist palette with a dash of attitude.

The main salon also features generous 12 foot ceiling height and fully glazed walls creating an island within the yacht.

The second level up is reserved for a series of guest suites and secondary bow deck. The owner’s suite occupies the third level with “sky bridge,” pilot house, and upper deck.

All decks below are currently designated crew quarters, storage and mechanical, engine room activities.

Infinitas is designed to accommodate 16 guests and crew.

Cook&Bath is a clever construction and room division that allows you to make the most of the space restrictions. In a way, it eliminates an entire wall and uses a centralized bathroom-shower space as the room division. An interesting way to demark the kitchen, living and bedroom space!
