There are millions of empty shipping containers littering the world ports, which can be transformed into a container building. Efforts to utilize container as the current living space is no just a temporary trend. Container used as a home or office is increasingly becoming an option as a model for solving the housing problem. Containers are small, so it needs small land lots, which means less cost needed to have one.
Model of container is suitable for adults who are struggling to live separated from their parents, especially those who have not worked full-time. Container building cost is lower than any conventional building. Many people should not have to worry anymore for housing, since it is more affordable than buying a house or an apartment flat.
Containers that are no longer used to send the goods, is a key ingredient to the container house. This is a second life for the container, which led to further reduction of energy consumption and house emissions reduction. Because we are not going to use the new resources when we bought the house container, we will buy a house made from recycled materials. This actually can support a green environment for the future.
Containers could actually contain kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom. As you can see in the pictures, a container that looks dull in its original function can be transformed into a minimalist and comfortable style. And not only for housing, can it serve as an office or business place such as small fashion store.
The colors for the container exterior wall can be anything, from bright to dark color. But it is recommended to use dark color or neutral color so it can camouflage the original shape of the container. A unique architecture like container building architecture is not only cheap but also can have more aesthetic value than any other building architecture.
