Used Materials and Technics Steel framing and container
The large existing platform would have allowed us to set up the house in the middle, but we preferred to offer the owner the opportunity to optimize his lot. This container house is suspended on high pillars. The resulting benefits are:
Inside each half container, fit a bedroom and a bathroom. The common space created between is protected by a large roof that protects the entire house. Metal and glass materials combined with natural materials (wood and cana) gives it a modern and tropical character.
