At a certain point in design school I started to think about what I would eventually want in a living space, and I settled on it needing to be a house over an apartment. During that same period of time shipping containers started to catch my eye as an alternative to traditional structural building materials and also as a response to sustainability.
Now a couple of years later, and many advances or at least changes in architecture and its attack of sustainability issues. We are starting to see amazing companies like Infinski who designs and constructs sustainable prefab architecture. Quite a few of their designs employ shipping containers as a major part of the design and structure. The specific house is named Casa El Tiamblo, which is made up of four 40 foot shipping containers and was design by James & Mau Arquitectura.
