Innovative interior design, architecture and recycling can go hand in hand. The container house recently previewed at the 2019 Casacor exhibition in Sao Paulo, Brazil shows how it is possible to transform boring shipping containers into a modern and functional house. It’s rare that we ever see shipping container homes so beautifully resolved, that the original container is simply disappears.
Based on the ethos of sustainability and reuse of materials, the 60 square meter house was made from two 40 feet containers attached alongside to side and has a living room, kitchen, and laundry integrated, in addition to an ensuite with a beautiful bathroom.
To coat the external facade for floors and the sun breaker the architect chose ultra-compact Dekton surface that we tend to use in kitchen bench-tops . These materials, which reproduce the noble appearance of marble and stone, has properties of high resistance to sun rays, scratches, stains, abrasion and were the architect’s choice in this project because they can coat the container internally and externally giving a unified finish with sophistication and in this way it is not possible to say that the house was made from containers.
