Five corten steel shipping containers, 2 x 40 Foot and 3 x 20 Foot were transformed into a bright orange earthquake-proof home that sits on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile. The house, by Project ARQtainer, was developed as an earthquake-resistant and low-cost home that could be built in a small time frame. For the architects, shipping containers provided the ideal building material given their strength, durability, stackability, modular form and ample availability. Measuring a little over 1,200 square feet, the container home features thermal pane windows, internal coating plasterboard and projected cellulose insulation.
