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.

Temporary Taichung Infobox by Stan Allen

Temporary Taichung Infobox by Stan Allen | 建築 | Scoop.it

New York architect Stan Allen constructed this pavilion of bamboo scaffolding at a former airport in Taiwan. The temporary Infobox structure displays the architect's masterplan proposals to redevelop the site.

The scaffolding is entirely of bamboo sticks, tied with metal wire; the structure will be completely recycled when it is eventually dismantled.

Artist Covers 10-Storey Building With 1,000 Recycled Doors

Artist Covers 10-Storey Building With 1,000 Recycled Doors | 建築 | Scoop.it
One salvaged door wasn't enough for this installation artist, who transformed this multi-storey structure into an eccentric landmark with 1,000 doors.

Using salvaged building materials like doors in your next building project is a good idea, but South Korean installation artist Choi Jeong-Hwa takes it to a whole new level. Using 1,000 recycled doors, Choi Jeong-Hwa transformed an otherwise nondescript, 10-storey facade into a eye-dazzling delight of colours and textures.
