Shipping Container Home Book 165  – Off Grid Hybrid – Cliff Container Home

Todays featured Shipping Container Home is a 100% off grid 1400sq ft Hybrid design sitting atop a steel frame designed and built by Architecture for A Change (A4AC) in Johannesburg South Africa.

The house is not only solar powered but also draws water from a private well on the property. Intelligent passive design negates the need for airconditioning, even the kitchen is serviced with bottled gas supply.

A4AC reduced cut costs by using upcycled shipping containers and other repurposed materials to build the “Cliff House” , a lifted flying container house with an economical, energy-efficient design.

Part of A4AC’s goal was to minimize the impact of construction on the site. Recycled wine bottle corks were transformed into cork flooring, and recycled plastic bottles provide insulation. The building is clad in steel sheeting.

This is the 165th Container Home we have featured in this format for our Readers.
