Casa Conteiner, an amazing house inspired by the oriental minimalist style made with recycled sea containers

The tendency to worry about the environment has generated an interesting movement to find ideas and solutions to recycle materials and objects in order to give them a new existence. Thus we have seen a few months ago appear a great variety of projects in which the famous and ignominious metal sea containers have been recycled. In addition to being visually unattractive, these objects have invaded the ports and their surroundings.

However, at the end of their useful life, these containers are a headache because of the contamination they represent. But this was without taking into account the new area of ​​opportunity that many designers and architects have found that have begun an impressive work of container recycling for home use, more specifically to create true home, comfortable and functional.

The Brazilian-born architect Marilia Pellegrini has presented us, in the framework of the Casacor de Sao Paolo exhibition, her house model made with sea containers. Conteiner House It is a concept of minimalist style very inspired by the idea of ​​simplicity led by the art director of MUJI, Kenya Hara.

With two containers, the Brazilian architect has managed to define a living space of 60 square meters spread over two different areas. On the one hand, we find the bedroom with its storage spaces and a bathroom while, on the one hand, a living room with open kitchen dominates the second half of the house.

Beyond the use of containers that disappear completely after the impressive architectural work, I loved the idea of an open house, by sliding shutters, towards an outside patio coated with high strength marble imitation synthetic material that absorbs heat. The Conteiner House is a modern, minimalist and very functional way of using a pair of sea containers as a structure of a house in which many of us would like to live.

Detail for the house of ... a horror movie lover

I recognize it, I saw The Shining when I was too young and I'm still afraid to think about the movie (the book I haven't read yet). The hotels have always seemed a bit sinister, especially those that are half empty and Jack Nicholson is probably to blame. If you are less medical than me and enjoyed that movie, you can not miss the cuckoo clock of The Shining.
