Today we will show you container house from Bali, Indonesia.
Dura Container House sat on 1,600 sqm land, which is rented for 20 years by the owner. So, the first and main idea is to use temporary structure that later can be dissembled and reused when the rent is over.
18 units of (20ft) used shipping containers are stacked and arranged in L shape. The L shape arrangement allows a double volume space created at the center which have functions as living space and multifunction space for family and friend gathering. The stacked containers at the west side (the entrance area) protects the living space from the west sun heat. East side of the building is the big garden connected with the living space through full height glass windows to maximize the opening – connecting inside and outside, gaining the east morning sun light as much as possible.
In this two storey house,
the ground floor is functioned as public area, while the first floor is dedicated for more private and intimate activities for the owner. The ground floor has a small meeting room, offices and service kitchen. All these areas are connected to the main living space. Next to living space is terrace for outdoor breakfast, dining, or BBQ. On the first floor, master bedroom and the other two bedrooms are connected by small living space with small pantry in the corner. The corridor on the first floor is visually connected to the main living space.
Covering the spaces is the additional roof in V shape. It protects from rain, direct west sunlight and buffer heat to minimize the heat absorption by the containers. The V shape meant to soften the boxy look of the containers and creates movement to the architecture and how it is visually related with the landscape. As the consequence of the roof design, water drainage is well planned and executed with a statement gutter that becomes another strong element on the design.
