An interesting design of home but also using trees for helping shade the home seems to enhance the building as well. Having the central area as a passage between the two containers also assists with natural cooling. A pretty good design for the tropics.

Disaster Relief Container Homes – Green Container International Aid

Green container International Aid have realised the possibilities of rapid house development due to the shipping containers natural structure. On top of that it obviously is a housing development that is designed for more sustainable living. After years in the tropics myself  you see weathers offer the extremes from hot sunny long days to heavy rainfall and flooding and a shipping container home survives these issues without too many problems. Add to that over the problems of concrete housing such as the need for water and materials being moved to site for construction or going down the timber route to find problems with termite infestation the shipping container often comes up as the most viable for many projects especially if rapid deployment is needed.
