Container prefab home – ConHouse from Slovenia

Not my first choice of colours and design for the exterior paintwork but the Conhouse was introduced to deal with high housing prices and a declining affordable living space in Trebnje, Slovenia. The worst affected and no doubt why the designs and colour schemes were directed in the way they are is towards the younger more upwardly mobile generations who are likely to be struggling to get onto the housing market.

The design is based on two containers placed on top of each other with the upper unit overhanging the entrance giving shade and a pathway area while the other side creates a patio or rear terrace. With the way the containers are positioned it also allows a small roof deck type balcony to be available on the upper floor via sliding glass doors.

The staircase has been designed in a minimalistic way which suits the design and age group of the buyers the home is aimed at. With the added floor to ceiling windows although small and compact I can see the appeal of this style of home.

Shipping container home – Prefab Drop House by D3 architects

What I love about this design is firstly its not obvious its a shipping container home and secondly it has that very French flair and feel to the property. Not big but practical having sliding glass doors/windows allows airflow through the property which here in the Philippines is an important point when trying to keep cool at the same time in Europe the fresh air, the sounds of nature are all reasons to use the natural environment and bring it into your home. Great design love it!shipping container home - Prefab drop house by D3 Architects
