Minimalism & Playfulness Define a Contemporary Shipping Container Residence

Minimalism & Playfulness Define a Contemporary Shipping Container Residence | 建築 | Scoop.it

The WFH House in China, designed by Copenhagen-based studio, Arcgency is a contemporary design, constructed of three stacked shipping containers.

 

The house surrounded by lush vegetation  ”was designed to produce more energy than it consumes through the use of upcycled shipping containers as a steel frame, a sustainable bamboo facade, a rainwater collection system, solar cell-clad green roof and permeable paving.”

The interior is neat, dressed up in impeccable white, yet with splashes of color here and there. The main floor is envisioned as one singular space that accommodates the kitchen, dining area and the living room. The main advantage is that, this type of space delimitation allows a seamless transition between the indoor environments...

Natalie Curtis's curator insight, March 6, 2013 9:18 AM

The WFH House is a perfect example of my inspiration for my Architecture Repurposing topic... it's sustainable, energy-efficient and innovative. It is a elegant representation of repurposing materials to be used in creative and intelligent alternate spacial use and design. The interior design is just as seamless and minimalistic as the outside and creates an open feel, as well. If you're at all curious about how the masterminds behind shipping container homes, do what they do, you'll find this blog interesting. The small array of pictures goes from the finished product all the way down the skeleton of the home and it's really quite fascinating to see the actual raw, industrial looking shipping containers being transformed into a modern, minimalistic and elegant home.

Home in the Forest

Home in the Forest | 建築 | Scoop.it

David has lived since 5 years in the wood, and spent $4,600 in material costs + 1000 to 1500 man hours to complete this house.
Living with the natural world and staying away from the noise and the contamination could be closer than you think, you’ll only need a chainsaw, a hammer, and a chisel....

一眼就可以看穿的透明教堂

如果說信仰是能帶領人們走過最痛苦、最煎熬、最低潮時期的無形力量,那麼以「透明」作為主題打造而成的教堂,似乎頗符合宗教在人們心目中的的地位!在Z33當代藝術工廠(Z33 House for Contemporary ...

A Survey of Bamboo Architecture

A Survey of Bamboo Architecture | 建築 | Scoop.it
To many architects and designers, bamboo, one of the most eco-friendly materials on the planet, is much more than just a tool with which to decorate and embellish existing structures...

This eco-friendly material has the same technical performance as most timber, concrete, and steel constructions- but with a  smaller carbon footprint. One of the fastest-growing plants anywhere on Earth, bamboo's regenerative properties are unmatched.

This collection of buildings showcases the natural aesthetic beauty of bamboo architecture.
