Tropical Container House- in Costa Rica. In this video, we bring you a Tropical Container House built using bamboo and 2 shipping containers in costa-Rica. This Tropical Shipping Container House is built using bamboo and refrigerated shipping containers. Two shipping containers are used as a structural framework of the home. The Guadua Bamboo, which is one of the fastest growing bamboos, is harvested from nearby Costa Rican bamboo plantations, preserved, treated and used as the structural beams for the roof. Watch this video here: This container house is specially designed for the tropics. Cooling, humidity and heavy rains are some of the tropical climate challenges taken into account in the design. The house accommodates the following salient features: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry room and closet are accommodated in the two shipping containers. The open space between the two containers contains an open plan living room with a spacious open kitchen, a dining and a lounge space. This tropical container house is truly a sustainable design. First, the house is built from insulated shipping containers and a local material, bamboo; and second the house design accommodates the tropical climate by minimizing heat gain and maximizing natural ventilation.
