Probably the ultimate plot
A new and alternative housing trend has emerged in several countries in recent years.
Smart houses and container houses that are both functional, space-saving and not least environmentally friendly have received both attention and prices for their practical solutions.
Living in a container
Designer Debbie Glassberg is keen on the environment, and was inspired to create his very own container home.
– I started this project because I wanted to explore green and sustainable building techniques, explains designer Debbie Glassberg to Bonytt. no.
The house is also a prototype for her own company Homecontained.com.
The project started in December 2009 and was completed in March 2010
– I live with my cohabitant and my son, she says.
Containers from China
Her residence consists of five containers and extends over 241 square feet in Kansas City. The extraordinary house is both lively, spacious and bright.
– We got the containers ourselves from China, continues Glassberg. The reason I chose China was because it is central to many countries, and they produce a lot of the interior elements I needed for the project.
All rooms in the house have an open and airy room, while the white kitchen is the very heart of the house. Glassberg has focused on the use of energy-efficient appliances.
And on the roof she has grown her own herb garden.
– Otherwise, the house also has geothermal heat and some passive solar energy, she explains.
The interior of the special container housing is distinctive and color-reinforced.
– Both the color use and the materials I found inspiration in China, says Glassberg. They are so good at using colors and it’s so beautiful there.
– It’s a lovely home, she ends. – With all the light, it feels almost like living outdoors, and we are big-headed.
Glassberg will eventually start production of container houses for sale.
