Containers House by Leone Loray Arquitectos in San Vicente, Argentina. In this video, we bring you an amazing family house built with seven shipping containers in Saint Vincent, Argentina. This two story house is made of (7) 40′ High cube shipping containers creating a total of 210 m² of enclosed space and 70 m² semi-covered. The containers are grouped in three pairs distributed on two floors. One and a ½ pairs on the ground floor and two on the first floor are stacked to create a 2 storied luxurious house. The 2 pairs of containers on the top level are placed parallel to each other on top of three containers below, cantilevered at the front and separated by double volume circulation shaft in the middle creating a dynamic form of a TWINBOXES resembling a binoculars. On the ground floor the social functions of the house are accommodated. All these spaces were housed in three 40-foot containers. Two containers are paired together to accommodate an open plan living space, and the remaining container is divided into two halves to accommodate the kitchen in one half and the study in the other half. The private functions of the house are accommodated on the upper floor in four shipping containers. Two containers are paired together to house the master bedroom with the master bathroom and the dressing room. On the opposite side of the bridge, a second pair of containers houses other bedrooms, a shared bathroom, plus a children’s playroom.
