This shipping container house project, called Containerlove, was completed by LHVH Architekten. It’s an example of what you can build with two shipping containers and a bit of land.
After a phase of production and planning, considering just how the used shipping container could be adapted to the needs of the residential setting, which took about a month, the containers were delivered and assembled.
The owners then were able to move in on the first day!
This is one of the great advantages of building with containers: agility. Also, since the container is already formed, you already have a roof and four walls. It’s a safe, secure shelter even without anything done to it.
The corner created by putting two containers together makes a particularly roomy section of the shipping container house layout (compare the photos of the layout and the airy interior).
With a shorter work phase, as well as making it easier not haveing to rent a temporary residence or coordinate with moving out of a house you sell, your pocketbook and the environment will thank you. Photos: Tomas Riehle. For more of LHVH’s work, find them in our directory.
