As we have already enjoyed on occasion, Facades World again he surprised them with a Two-story house design built with containers. This design interests us in two aspects: the main one is that it is made from large recycled containers and secondly because elements were used to make it a self-sufficient construction with the use of equipment and materials that allow self-sufficiency of energy without polluting the environment.
Facade of two-story house made with containers
The exterior appearance of the house maintains the original undulating faces of the large metal containers, what stands out is that four containers have been used, one of them rotated, which completely changes the monotonous aspect of the house. On the roof of the second floor we will see located the photovoltaic solar panels that allow the house to get energy both day and night.
An important point to mention is that thanks to the coating with ceramic SuperTherm (there are other products on the market that fulfill this function), the sun's rays are reflected (important knowing that the containers are metallic) thus maintaining the proper temperature inside.
Interior design of house made with containers
La house made of recycled containers It is above all practical, although it dispenses with constructive elements that we can see in typical house designs, the appearance is improved and as insulation the interior of the container walls is covered with wood, we can even see this in the False ceiling. In the photo we see a passage on the second floor where wood has been placed as a floor and glass as a protector under the handrail, giving a warmer appearance to the home. Let's observe ...
The interior walls are drywall, which allows to keep the total cost of the house relatively low. The appearance of the interior environments are sober, we will find the use of light colors to increase the feeling of spaciousness. Another aspect that is very careful in this passive house is the water, since it is collected in two large tanks and then pumped to the garden, it is used gas water heaters for showers.
To conclude with our entry today, we can not fail to take a look at the elements that make a house self-defeating how are the use of solar panels, the controlled mechanical ventilation (VMC) (in the case of the container house, fans were not used heating by air-air pump), what they did use is wood coating on the inside of the walls, in addition the entire external structure was applied SuperTherm ceramic that acts reflecting the heat.
