CALLAO CONTAINER HOUSE

CALLAO CONTAINER HOUSE

With a focus on sustainability, TRS Studio has completed the Callao Container House in Peru. The family home uses two 40-foot shipping containers as its base to house the private areas. Above, an upper level formed by recycled wood, boards made from wood shavings, and recycled polycarbonate plates contains the communal area. The translucent shell floods the living spaces with natural light while its frosted appearance still offers a sense of privacy. The eco-friendly material choice is both low in cost and environmental impact, and also offers a durable, low maintenance option that can withstand a range of climates and temperatures.
