Every now and then I see something that makes me stop and wonder, “Would I have done that?” Gotta admit, I really love how this looks; the beam and built-ins are great too.

The shipping container aesthetic has always appealed to me–see evidence of that here, here, and here–but this project takes it all to a new level. Here’s some of what World Architecture News has to say about it:

Benjamin Garcia Saxe has now shared details of his most recent scheme, ‘Containers of Hope’, — located in San Jose, Costa Rica — which seamlessly transforms two disused shipping containers into an aesthetically pleasing private home.

By situating the two containers side by side and using sections of recycled metal to make an adjoining roof, Saxe has created a sense of openness within the internal volume whilst providing a cross ventilation which is said to have eliminated the need for air conditioning.

The architect ponders: “Perhaps this project begins to expose the importance of design as a tool to provide beauty and comfort with a very low budget ($40,000) in the 21st century, whilst using creativity to not only redefine a scrap material such a disused shipping container, but perhaps to even show that there are viable, low cost, passive alternatives of temperature control to adapt to a very intense tropical climate.”

$40,000?? Eliminated the need for air conditioning?? Wow…
