A Simple Yet Functional Container Home

Site-specific-r2x20-03

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.
