Following the Deca Lab by Ricardo Bello Dias, (read here), here is another temporary architecture from Casacor San Paolo 2019, the Casa Contêiner (The Container House), a project by the architect Marilia Pellegrini, which promotes sustainability and reuse.
The reuse of containers to make homes is not really new; however, architect Marilia Pellegrini aims to show that even in a container you can make fascinating settings, in addition to reducing costs, simplifying construction techniques and speeding up the completion of the project.
A complete house in 60 square meters
The Casa Contêiner (Container House Cosentino) occupies an area of 60 square meters, resulting from the combination of two 40-foot containers. This space includes a living room, dining area, kitchen, bedroom, laundry room, and a large, comfortable bathroom.
The concept of the environment is inspired by the culture of Japanese homes, with a very rational use of space; the white and minimal mood completes the atmosphere, confirming the beauty and elegance of the house.
Dekton in white color and Carrara marble-like finishing for the essential mood
The facade cladding, floors and sunshade panels are made of Dekton, a solid surface produced by Cosentino. Dekton, also made with white Carrara marble finish, is a material highly resistant to aging, abrasion, stains, sun rays, and allows to have a seamless finish for the interior and exterior of the house.
The result is an essential house with a strong personality, thanks also to the furniture, which includes several pieces designed by international designers and made in Italy, including the wardrobe of the bedroom, by MisuraEmme.
A complete house, with the garden
Casa Contêiner’s project also includes an outdoor area with a garden, 90 square meters in size, with fruit trees and a bench made up of 204 slabs of Brazilian granite, creating a sculptural spiral.
With such an arrangement, the container becomes a housing solution that satisfies every living need, even from the style angle, for an increasingly nomadic generation.(Roberta Mutti)
