Although this shipping container isn’t a home I thought its design was a bit interesting in the use of trellis work to hide the metal side at the same time still allowing air to grow through no doubt once the plants develop it will give the building a bit of shade similar in the way I was talking before about building trellis slightly away from the sides of containers to allow airflow as well along the gap formed between trellis and container side. But also looking at the container more closely it becomes pretty obvious a simple restaurant or canteen can be formed without too much work with the ability to add extension roof canopies off the shipping container to extend the seating area etc. Which many people may assume isn’t ideal at the same time like here in the Philippines most people are concerned about the quality of the food and a bit of shade over most other things. So for a budget restaurant could easily see it working here.
Here in the Philippines I often come across new building developments and guard houses on sub divisions with terrible conditions for the guards. Considering they are the first port of call when visiting a site they are also the first image that reflects on a company. At the same time expecting professionalism from workers also comes about by treating them with respect as well. A run down old shack isn’t what I would call a step in the right direction but these converted cut down containers offer a good solid location that offer a functional and practical office space. At the same time once the homes are completed and possibly a new guard house is constructed these units can be moved meaning instead of constructing a shack every sub division development you can physically take a “mobile” guard house/reception with you.
