Greetings from Chile! 🙂
Ready for this shipping container beach refuge? Well pack your bagsbecause these photos are stunning! Thanks to the architects with Pablo Errázuriz, this home is located in Canela Baja, Chile. Completed in 2008 with a square footage of 258, this tiny container home looks like the perfect getaway.
From the architect. The refugee is located 260km at the north of Santiago. The challenge was to design a space with a reduced budget to spend short vacations. It had also to be safe and easy to maintain. The program consists of 3 elements:
- Container; a recovered container, cladded with corten steel plates with wooden boards painted white for the interiors, which include a bathroom and a kitchen. The exterior has a wooden deck terrace with a steel structure on top of it with the same dimensions as the container (6×2.4m) that holds a PVC sheet for wall and ceiling when required.
- Tent yard; a small area marked by low stone walls with river sand, connected rough gravel footsteps.
- Water tower; acting as a warehouse and “engine room” on the first level, a bedroom on the 2nd level and a water tank on the 3rd level.
So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
