Container Design Loft - Alejandra Dellepiane

Amongst a dense pine forest near Uruguayan beaches is Container Design Loft, a luxurious bright red hotel made from stacked shipping containers.The entrepreneur and Alejandra Dellepiane created this high class accommodation complete with nouvelle cuisine. The shipping container lofts offer eco tourism offers up relaxation as well as sports facilities in a localised environment. On top of that organic food much of which is grown on site in surroundings that are in keeping with this amazing South American country which offers up dunes and deep blue sea to wind the hours away.

A bit of information on the owner is that she moved to Los Angeles at the spring age of 18 and after working at some top restaurants began cooking privately for TV stars including Steven Spielberg, Blake Edwards, Julie Andrews, Danni de Vito, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Barbara Streisand.

When she fell pregnant she decided to make the move back home to South America relocating to Punta del Este an area famous for its expensive luxury living. She quickly found opening a restaurant for the jet set was an instant success. Drawing on her experiences and knowledge instead of managing her own business she decided to create a concept for Philippe Stark’s luxurious Yoo Tower, which opened in Punta del Este two years ago.

Building on the experience of that she has now moved to the next town along which is an isolated fishing town called Jose Ignacio where herself another chef Emmanuel Romano and architect father came up with the Container Design Loft.

Container retreat – Hybrid architecture Seattle

Cargotecture as Hybrid Architecture describes it offers large low-cost prefab housing solutions based on a vision of sustainability and a modular approach. Which to be honest i agree with. This building called the c320 Studio is ideal for a weekend retreat or a small home. It has a bathroom and separate sleeping area as part of the 2 x 20ft container home. While still managing to not stick out too much even though bright orange in this riverside location.
