“studio art” has been exploring the notions of the nomadic life with this architectural piece of a container home, in this example the structures of the shipping containers all together can serve of multiple uses: As a home to become a young independent, as an apartment, as a bungalow for vacation resorts, as a guest house ( or a pool house ) , as an office attached to the house, as a home-study annexed to our house , as a hotel room …
The built prototype that you can see in these pictures is located in the Algarve in Portugal , where the company has converted a 40-feet container in a holiday retreat, painted of orange color to match with the green surroundings .
The structure comprises a very wide platform ubicated at the entrance of the home, expanding greatly the possibilities of the house when the outside temperatures are softer, something that happens more than half of the year in the Algarve. To facilitate the communication of the container with the terrace, some large sliding glass doors has been installed in the container.
The ” shelter ” includes the key elements of classic a house all together in an optimized space: a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom that responds to te requests from the local council to achieve the local requirements.
” Nomad living” is a mobile , sustainable and affordable house which is a functional place of retreat which can be extended adding different architectural and engineered annexes.
