Containerlove / LHVH Architekten


From the architect. At first glance, this container house looks like it is just a temporary housing solution, located on a rural site surrounded by cow fields, woods, and houses with saddle roofs. After detailed planning and a four-week production phase, the containers were delivered and mounted and the residents could even move in on the same day.
Most of the work was carried out off-site so only the joints, pipes and connections needed to be finished on-site. The neighbors’ initial surprise soon changed to a positive response. The surprisingly generous interior space was admired just as much as the protected terrace at the rear of the house. However the question remains as to when the roof will be delivered.
