From the architect. Gabriela calvo and marco peralta dreamed of dwelling in their incredible property 20 mins outdoor of the town of san jose, costa rica; in which they might be with their horses and revel in the natural landscape. They made the very formidable desire of exploring with me the possibility of making a very inexpensive house created from overlooked shipping containers that allowed them to be dept unfastened and stay the lifestyles they usually dreamed of. It became essential for me to offer them with the sunrise, the sunset, the extraordinary views, and average try to create a feeling of comfort and home.

A roof between the two containers, made from the scrap pieces of steel taken to make the windows, now not simplest creates an internal sensation of openness but also affords a pass ventilation that’s enormously enough sufficient to by no means have to turn the air con on.

The final value of the residence (40,000usd) is lower than the fee of social housing provided for the bad in costa rica. Perhaps this mission starts offevolved to expose the importance of layout as a tool to offer beauty and comfort with a completely low price range within the 21st century, even as the usage of creativity to not best redefine a scrap cloth such a disused shipping field, however possibly to even show that there are possible, low fee, passive alternatives of temperature manage to adapt to a totally intense tropical climate.
