Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 57

| By | Category: Free Tutorial, Profiled ISBU Project

Following  the incredible popularity of our digital book series – The  Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built – we  have decided to release a number of expanded  titles  for 2015 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Book 57 – Single 40′ Relocatable Container Retreat – Portugal

Today’s featured Container Home Project uses a single second hand 40’ Type 1A Shipping Container together with a wide deck that runs along the entire frontage of the dwelling, extending the narrow space outwards thus opening up the interior to the exterior via large glass sliding doors.

The Retreat was designed as a Relocatable Getaway Retreat by Architecture and Design Team Studio Arte and includes living, eating, and Toilet / Shower Areas and responds to the site’s local strict Building Regulations.

The Steel Roof provides Shielding from the Sun and assists the Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation to maintain comfortable internal Temperatures in the Temperate Climate of Portugal.

The property is located in Silves, Portugal.
