Shipping Container Office In Singapore “’phase z. ro”

Shipping container office - singapore

Shipping container buildings are often seen as “too hot” but if this is the case why are we seeing more and more appearing in Tropical climates?

Here we find an unusual shipping container office complex in Singapore. Although temporary they could quite happily sit there for the next 20 years completely functional. The shipping container offices which have been painted bright yellow known as the ‘phase z. ro’ have actually already been moved and no doubt found a new home already. The design and build of shipping container architecture allows almost giant Lego ease of dismantling and reconstructing elsewhere. Interesting project whatever way you look at it mind.

Shipping Container Art Gallery In Oslo, Norway

A Shipping Container Gallery based in Oslo by MMW for Alexandra Dyvi

A Shipping Container Gallery based in Oslo by MMW for Alexandra Dyvi not only is a cheap method of construction but also extremely environmental when using recycled materials especially if the containers themselves in this case are near their final destination. But also the containers themselves are in keeping with a dockside look.

Due to the lack of light in shipping containers because of no windows the addition of circular windows opposite each other allows strong northern light to pass through, as well as rectangular end windows bringing plenty of light. The original site was one of ship building which is another in keeping factor of the shipping container structure. Especially when you introduce walkways and steel ship type steps.

The structure itself is made up of 10 shipping containers which were then insulated on the interior before covered in plywood and sheetrock.

Double decker bus home

The double decker bus mobile home idea takes me back to the perception of people moving around in the 60s. Not sure where it fits into today’s society or fuel prices but for those who are minimalistic and want to travel as a group it still does come out as a viable contender especially for things like bands or other acts moving around a country needing to stop in a different town every night.

The design was done by Aristide Antonas who is a Greek professor of architecture and the conversion does seem an interesting although may not be practical for road movement. At the same time with rising fuel prices I can see larger vehicles coming off the road and this also might be a viable reason for converting one if you can get it through town/city planning for something cheap to convert.

The two storey vehicle is designed with 7 beds, a sitting room and a restroom not sure how the caravan club will see it on one of their holiday sites mind.

Elegant 2 container house 2 x 40ft on a warehouse

 This design was done by Maziar Behrooz Architecture and its something more in the line of what I am looking for in a home. The container house forms up the upper level while the traditional methods of concrete keep the lower level or underground level out of sight as well as cool which would work well in the Philippines. But at the same time the high ceilings open up the building to help cool it as well as its natural woodland cover.

Its partly why I think once we start developing homes ourselves they will sell as simply these sort of designs here in the Philippines are few and far between. Marketing to the modern younger aged buyers these types of places are fantastic in modern design.

E-CORRE Complex environmental centre in Long Beach California – Amazing shipping container canopy design

E-CORRE Complex - Environmental centre longbeach california - Shipping container recycled building 

The environemental Centre in Long Beach, California went to the extreme when working with shipping containers in their design. The E-CORRE Complex is designed by APHIDoIDEA Architects and utilizes new technologies in renewable energy. They have built into the centre a solar passive design with vegetated roof space as well as recycling materials. The arch design has been structured to tilt for solar exposure for the roof gardens which also include a rainwater harvesting network which reduce the need for heavy watering.

It offers not only everything people in the area would like to know about sustainable building development but also its own green community and amphitheatre.
