Recycling is one of the major issues nowadays. Especially when it comes to architecture and sustainable design. We’ve seen a lot of creative ways to build a home from stretch using eco-friendly materials or recycled ones, but we’ve never seen a house entirely build of…well, shipping containers. The WFH House in China, designed by Copenhagen-based studio, Arcgency  is made of three stacked shipping containers. The house surrounded by lush vegetation  “was designed to produce more energy than it consumes through the use of upcycled shipping containers as a steel frame, a sustainable bamboo facade, a rainwater collection system, solar cell-clad green roof and permeable paving.”  It had the sustainable feel all the way.

The interior is neat, dressed up in impeccable white, yet with splashes of colour, here and there. The colourful rugs create a comfy feeling and somehow, they remind us of the pure and minimalistic (also very stylish) Scandinavian design. Nothing too edgy nor provocative. Just a luminous and breezy environment, flooded by light. The main floor is envisioned as one singular space that accommodates the kitchen, dining area and the living room. The main advantage is that, this type of space delimitation allows a seamless transition between the indoor environments.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
