This residential building made of shipping containers, meant for young users, is a 1,400-square-meter, 4-floor construction raised with 6 prefabricated blocks of stairs and 70 recycled containers, which dynamically alternate to form little balconies. Paying attention to orientation, insulation, and cross ventilation, each unit contains a bedroom-studio, a bathroom, and a kitchenette. The apartments on the first floor open out to a small patio. Minimizing construction time and costs, the prefab modular system is designed to adapt to different needs and places.
