The Mystery of Shipping Container Architectures

Shipping Container Architecture From Studio 804 Makes Sense

Is there a type of building that saves time and effort, and also is green and environmentally friendly? Is there a living space that is both safe and comfortable, and full of creative space? Architecture gives us the answer. It takes the basic module and adopts the manufacturing mode. After the structural construction and interior decoration of each module is completed in the factory with an assembly line, it is transported to the project site and quickly assembled into buildings of different styles (hotels, residences, etc.) according to different purposes and functions. , schools, dormitories, factories, warehouses, exhibition halls, etc.). Along with electric vehicles and wireless Internet, it is considered as an important invention that is most likely to change the way of life of human beings in the next ten years. Compared with traditional construction methods, it is more environmentally friendly, more efficient, safer and more convenient.

From the foundation to the molding, bricks and tiles must be stacked on the construction site in the traditional construction method, while the container building introduces the container element into the prefabricated building system. All in one, mass production of single-person modules is completed in the factory, and only needs to be assembled and spliced at the construction site, which reduces the construction time of the house by more than 60%, and it replaces manual production with mechanized production, which can minimize labor costs. Save 70%, and ensure on-site management, material storage and construction safety, and at the same time incorporate the development of circular economy into its own strategic business, refit houses with existing containers as basic modules, make full use of existing resources, and use containers Steel columns and side walls are the characteristics of the building’s stressed steel structure. The free combination of container modular units forms the basic structure of the building, which saves a lot of steel and concrete in the construction process and achieves the goal of energy conservation and environmental protection. 

Shipping container architectures are not like traditional building forms. It does not need building templates, nor scaffolding, and it will not cause a lot of construction waste, so it can produce housing like a car. It can effectively save a lot of labor, save time and money, meet the requirements of building energy conservation, and solve the problem of high housing prices in cities.

What exactly is a shipping container cabin?

Shipping container house is a building system that hits the fashion trend, which can be moved anywhere, anytime, bringing people a more convenient and comfortable life. The solar photovoltaic panels can be used for indoor electricity, and the solar water heater can provide heating and water supply. The discharge of indoor showers and domestic water is purified by the sewage treatment system for reuse. Depending on the number of people, shipping container houses of different sizes can be customized.

Building a house with a container is a new idea. It is green and environmentally friendly, saves time and effort, and is very flexible. Compared with traditional housing, it can provide families with more choices. Individuals, families, and even a community can get what they need. , A house made of a steel box can also be full of fashion and is very friendly to the environment.

Types of shipping container architectures

In western countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, etc., shipping container housing has been widely used in many fields such as private residences, offices, transitional housing, etc., and even container blocks and container cities have emerged, which are generally recognized and accepted by the public.

The purpose of container house

Container houses rely on their own advantages, and the internal space has derived a variety of uses, the most extensive are the following four, residences, hotels, bars and small exhibition halls.

Production process

Most of the structure of the container house is finished in the factory, such as assembly welding, etc., and then the interior is decorated, and then they are transported to the destination, and then stacked and installed at the destination.

Expandability of shipping container house

The expanded container architecture adopts the space of its main body to make many parts (rooms) movable. After the house is transported to the site, these rooms are slid out and processed and fixed. It forms a larger building space and saves shipping costs.

The container house is similar to building a building. The surrounding and partition foundations are leveled, preferably reinforced concrete, which is relatively strong; then erect columns, connect the skeleton with transverse beams, upper partitions, outer wall panels and door and window frames; follow the floor. , and then install a layer up, then install the roof truss and roof panel; finally install doors and windows, etc., and pull the vertical support. There are sanitary ware, hardware and the like.

In fact, this is a light steel structure, which is very similar to a heavy steel structure workshop.

The container house has the advantages of quick installation, convenient movement, high turnover, and long life. It can be widely used in large-scale construction sites and commercial, civil and military fields. Our container house products can be set as detachable container houses, welded container houses and sea container modified container houses, etc.

Shipping container architectures have the same purpose. They are also processed in the factory and installed on site through transportation, which reduces the construction time, and still follows the concept of environmental protection, and tries not to destroy the natural scene on site.

The modules of the house are flexible and can be combined freely. The structure of the container house is completely different from the traditional prefab house. The first floor and the second floor of the container house belong to different boxes. The floor materials of each independent box are steel, cement and ceramic tiles, with a thickness of more than 20 cm. Such a structure is naturally much better than the sound insulation effect of the prefab house. In addition to the cement floor on the first floor of the prefab house, the floors above are all reused wooden boards, and the sealing and sound insulation effects are even worse.
