Greetings from Spain! 🙂
CDB2016 SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

Today we are sharing another spectacular example of a shipping container home and office in Cordoba, Spain. Said to be the first shipping container home in the city, the 12971 sq.ft. house was designed by Francsico Carmona of Futurevo Building. Third Skin Architecture manufactured the shipping container home in a warehouse before being transported and assembled on site. They used four 40 feet high cube shipping containers.

Interior

The home has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living area on the ground floor, and office space on the upper level.  One of the key features of this house is the use of ceramic bases insulating paint, the other is the internal mezzanine area created by heavily modifying the two stacked containers. Internally, a double foyer for the living room and a spiral staircase give access to the mezzanine which serves as an office, and also leads to the terrace which has a beautiful view of the pool and garden. This project uses the spacing technique which allows for creating a “virtual corridor” and a better internal layout.

You know that we at Container Home Hub love to research the home as much as possible and after finding this home’s address and doing a little search on Google Maps, we found this is more of a guest home/office that is connected to another very large home in Spain.

So what do you think? Would you live here? ☺

Hi, I'm Nancy and I'm the founder of containerhomehub.com! Since visiting The Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas a few years ago, I have been enthralled by the various ways people are using items such as shipping containers. Welcome to my slice of heaven here on the world wide web. I hope you enjoy.
