There's something about the simple design of this small container home that I really like. It was mentioned on A Site-Specific Experiment, which is run by Chutayaves Sinthuphan out of Bangkok, Thailand. The one-bedroom, one bathroom home was built using two, 20-foot containers with cutouts for windows and doors. There's a prefab bathroom inside and the interior is insulated with a recycled content material.
Located in Thailand, the home features a roof layer that's raised above the home — not unlike the roof design of the Ultimate Desert House or Cinco Camp. Seems like a great way to use passive ventilation to keep the inside of the home nice and cool.
Over the last few years, we've seen a trend towards using shipping containers in the construction of all sorts of structures. Our site runs an archive of noteworthy shipping container homes to keep you up-to-date on the latest — make sure to check it out.
