A Casa Suspensa Container House – Brazil

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Hi everybody,

Today we will show you the container house from Brazil.

Description submitted by the project team.

A Casa Suspensa was named because it is raised from the natural ground level of the site where it was located. This is because the house is surrounded by native trees, so the windows are level with the treetops and the balconies blend in with the branches.

In addition, the soil remains original, preserving the drainage and root dynamics, which were not harmed because the minimum of concrete was used in the foundations.

The premise of the project was a country house that integrated with the local ecosystem, with sustainability and recyclability. For this reason, the construction system with recycled maritime containers was adopted.

In total 80% of the materials are recycled. Internally the demolition wood predominates in the walls and ceiling. Green roof with rainwater reuse, thermal and acoustic insulation are also the highlights of the house.

    Casa Suspensa is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I love the layout, the use of repurposed wood, the finishings…I love EVERYTHING about this home. This has been a dream 161 Powell Street San Francisco, CA mine to build a container home. What was the cost of building this beauty?

    Wonderful design and layout, wish there was one or two floor plan or elevations indicating the layout and size of the containers used.

    I Love, love, love, love, this place. The way the layout is on the property looks something like our property. How much was the cost to build?
