Shipping Container Cabin Sri Lanka
Principal Architect / Designer : Damith Premathilake
This Shipping Container Holiday Cabin was built entriely from reclaimed materials.
Located on an Special Forces army training base in Sri Lanka the cabin is surrounded by jungle and sits oon the shore of a beautiful lake with views to the mountains beyond.
The Shipping Container Cabin was constructed in about a month without skilled construction labour under the architect’s instruction.
The Architect considered all the natural and man made elements already available in the setting and advised the owner to find the reclaimed material to be used in the project. Materials used included timber strips from old bunkers and weapon boxes, and used railway sleepers. The overall intent of the designer was to create a relaxing and enjoyable space by using already available resources and the surrounding environment.
