Inside Shipping Container Student Accommodation

Odd thing about these modular units are they seem very narrow but still very functional. A great option in comparison to one of the students current accommodation which is something people forget. Especially in towns and cities with a high student population any spare room suddenly becomes a studio apartment making a shoebox home an overpriced reality. These shipping container solutions are no doubt on par with the rent but the space,design and functionality are a lot better as they are designed round the student usage rather than a room conversion that as you see in the video is an attic space where the bathroom is next to the kitchenette a horrible setup.

 

Amazing shipping container house, slots into tiny gap to create a new home.

A perfect example of maximising space with a shipping container home and I can see this sort of space being utilized in many towns and cities where people can’t vision something fitting into a gap.

This was built by architects Pieter Peelings and Silvia Mertens of Sculp(IT). Who reside in the containers as a workspace and home. Ground floor being the work floor, 1st being dining, third relaxation and sitting room. Finally reaching the 4th level with great views and a spa. Although not giant at 2.4m wide and 5.5m deep it does give a practical, functional property that slots in to the smallest of spaces.
