Discipline: Interior Architecture

This is a home inside of a standardized shipping container of 40 ft length. The concept is a sustainable architecture with mobility. The construction was an installation without waste – and faster. Due to the small width, the container´s lateral steel walls were removed to insert doors of glass and to link with the external area and helped with the natural ventilation and lighting. To lose the reference of floor, wall and ceiling, just one material was used as coating to increase the amplitude: wood.
