Infiniski Manifesto House - Curacavi Chile - Sustainable Container House
The house, of 160m2 is divided in two levels and uses 3 recycled maritime containers as structure. A container cut in two parts on the first level is used as the support structure for the containers on the second level. This structure in the form a bridge creates an extra space in between the container structure, isolated with thermo glass panels. As a consequence with only 90m2 worth of container, the project generates a total 160m2, maximizing and reducing significantly the use of extra building materials. This structure in the form of a bridge, responds to the bioclimatic needs of the house- Form follows Energy – and offers an effective natural ventilation system. It also helps to take full advantage of the house´s natural surroundings, natural light and landscape views. Designed by James and Mau.
