patrick partouche: maison in lesquin

patrick partouche created 'maison à lesquin'

Probably one of the strangest buildings we have come across but it all actually makes sense. The shipping container is both inside and outside of the building but the shipping container isn’t as important as the other parts of the building. But the ideas that come with the design could be for other shipping container homes. French architect patrick partouche created ‘maison à lesquin’ which is a dual use building for living and office. Based in Lesquin, France two large greenhouses sit with a metal building between them. Due to the nature of these large green houses they act as thermal insulation for the whole building. The steel frames covered in polycarbonate sheeting allow use of the building throughout the whole year and when its too hot the convertible roof will open to let heat out, at the same time large doors on the perimeter can be opened to allow airflow.

In the winter the reverse happens where the building is closed up but the suns rays heat up the green house areas which in turn heat the whole building. In the evenings or if its too sunny there are large white curtains on tracks that can be adapted to your needs.

Shipping Container Home Built with 8 containers – patrick partouche: maison container lille

Shipping container home - Patrick Partouche,Maison Container,lille

French architect patrick partouche has recently completed ‘maison container lille’, a single family residence created from eight shipping containers within the countryside of lille, france. the stacked units combine to generate 208 square meters of living space. The building itself has not shyed away from its container roots but look to enhance and utilise the idea. The container doors can be opened or closed to give privacy and shade when needed.

Although the design is an interesting one I do have concerns about its internal furnishings as it seems very industrial in its usage of materials. This can lead to the home feeling rather cold and empty at the same time it no doubt matches the requests of the owners which is something that leaves the architect limited on decisions.

The side by side layout however though is a good design and the use of light via the window areas gives the shipping container home a feeling of being bigger and brighter. The home was installed within 3 days which is a bit of an achievement.
