Solar Powered Office Produces Double The Power Needed (SPACE)

SPACE which stands for Solar Powered Adaptive Containers for Everyone

May seem a waste of energy at first but then again if this type of building is utilized for other buildings off it or back to the grid it may actually pay itself off over time for its generator use or payment from the grid.

Portability is also something people overlook when thinking shipping container buildings as well as “solar power is too expensive”. Well for a friend of mine who’s moving to a remote island he doesn’t have electricity there and generally the buildings are traditional bamboo or concrete. Either way building a home will take time, shipping something like this in however would give him a base of operations until things got underway. As well as a place to charge his power tools. Now this shipping container building by Adaptive Container’s SPACE buildings also has the ease of loading and unloading which many other shipping container building manufacturers are still trying to work round the problem. Add to that the solar rack can be loaded and unloaded in around 30 minutes the whole system is practical as well as thought out.

The name of the type of building is called SPACE which stands for Solar Powered Adaptive Containers for Everyone. Which in reality is a 140sqm of workspace with 20 solar panels on the roof that give out 350 kWh of power a month. Air conditioning is also installed as standard so the “its too hot in a shipping container” defeatists will find they are happy at home inside a shipping container that isn’t racking up the electric bill.

I’m pretty impressed with the layout and the Swiss army approach to design with a basic shipping container attached to one of these would make it a more viable option as the “powered” one would give its excess energy to run the other low cost shipping container unit.

Sleep Box – For Weary Travellers

Airport Sleep box modular building

Not exactly a modular home but its still modular in form. These would be a welcome sight in many an airport as it would allow a quick nap with all your luggage secure, making those long haul flights with long waits between destinations at airports bearable. Arch Group came up with this novel idea and its size is only 4 square metres in floor space. Mood setting LED’s adjust to give you the ambience you need to relax and it has just enough room to suit 3 people to have a power nap before carrying on with the journey.

Thing is travellers are more concerned about time and money. Going to a hotel takes both and shelling out on an overpriced airport hotel at that. These temporary and moveable structures offer up a very viable solution as you can rent it for as little as 30 minutes. Good ventilation also helps keep the Sleepbox fresh as well as electric blinds to help shut out unwanted light and a bit of privacy to get changed.
