Maison Container Lille

9 Feb

“French Architect Patrick Partouche has recently completed ‘maison container lille’, a single family residence created from eight shipping containers within the countryside of lille, france. the stacked units combine to generate 208 square meters of living space which overlook a field with cows through a facade of glazed panels. the original doors on the ground and upper level may be opened or closed from the outside for privacy or to protect from direct sunlight. resting upon reinforced concrete foundations, the dwelling was installed within three days on-site. the maritime containers were transported by truck and placed during construction with a crane. Large polycarbonate and glass bay windows with low-e coating and argon gas infill clad the front and rear elevation, serving as a thermal bridge and providing plenty of natural light. the removed corrugated sheets were introduced as decorative elements within the living spaces. The exterior complies with local regulations while the interior material palette of galvanized steel, poppy red columns and wood generates an industrial atmosphere as desired by the inhabitants”.
