Greetings from Argentina! 🙂
This bright, cheerful turquoise shipping container cabin is perfect for poolside camping in! Alterra Glamping is an all-natural resort near the beach in Pinamar, Argentina that combines outdoor relaxation, art and sustainable style. The resort touts itself as a “Glamping” destination and makes use of old shipping containers as private cabins. Artfully and simply decorated, these container cabins feature colorful interiors and bright daylight-filled windows – read on for a look inside!
Beautiful, simple, elegant, and colorful, the container offers plenty of room, including a kitchenette, bedroom, living room, and deck. Decorated with spots of red and aqua accents, you can’t help but smile at this spirited spot. You’ll notice beautiful hardwood flooring in this container, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that provide plenty of natural light. There’s a small dining room that seats four guests, along with a flat screen TV and some media storage space. White furnishings create a clean, fresh look.
The view from the sofa bed is stunning! You can get a great look at the custom-built terrace, which also features a dining table for meals al fresco. There’s a small coffee table, and another sofa with a pull out bed, creating space for two extra sleepers in this cozy container.
This cute red kitchen is simply stunning! It also offers all modern conveniences, including a microwave, sink, stove, and refrigerator. The bathroom offers a toilet, basin, sink, and shower. White tile gives the space a streamlined look and contrasts beautifully with the wood flooring.
Pinamar is a beach resort located about 350 kilometers south-east of Buenos Aires and the landscape is predominantly filled with dense pine woods. Originally, the resort was an art gallery and the funky and colorful main house was built by local architect Clorindo Testa. To transform the art gallery into a hostel, they changed some of the spaces into rooms and added two private cabins in the woods. No trees were harmed and the cabins were placed in between the trees. The main house still functions as a gallery, which is now located on the first floor.
The space retains its artsy and funky vibe and the rooms can still be used as studios if you want to take an art vacation. The shipping container cabins were created by placing two 20-foot cabins together in an L-shape and each features heating, cooling, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a private balcony. The containers were bought from the port of Buenos Aires and the insulating panels are made from reconstituted materials.
Alterra’s accommodations are designed to keep you in close contact with the surrounding environment, which is why it’s considered upscale camping or “glamping”. The resort also features a pool surrounded by a deck of recycled wood, an organic shop, a paint shop and massages if you want one.
This gorgeous container home also includes a hot tub, heat and air conditioning, and Wi-Fi! Who says roughing it has to be rough?
So what do you think? Would you stay here? 🙂
