Patrick Partouche, Maison Container, Lille France,

french architect patrick partouche has recently completed 'maison container lille', a single family residence created from
eight shipping containers within the countryside of lille, france. the stacked units combine to generate 208 square meters of living space
which overlook a field with cows through a facade of glazed panels. the original doors on the ground and upper level may be opened
or closed from the outside for privacy or to protect from direct sunlight. resting upon reinforced concrete foundations,
the dwelling was installed within three days on-site. the maritime containers were transported by truck and placed during construciton
with a crane.
