Shipping Container Homes | Clean and Green Architecutre Architects continue to pursue innovative, inexpensive and ecologically friendly ideas for homes and businesses.

Shipping containers are quite literally the Lego blocks of the architecture world. There are many benefits to this new style of architectural design, but that’s not to say that there aren’t flaws and obstacles to surpass. Perhaps the most interesting use of the cargo containers to date is a student residential development in Amsterdam. Shipping containers are a phenomenal architectural tool.

Le container aménagé | containers-amenages Le fabrication de un container aménagé une aventuré à partager Premier Chapitre Je suis un passionne des containers maritimes. Je crée ce blog. Le principe du conteneur a été inventé en 1956 par Malcom McLean (en), un transporteur routier américain qui trouvait que le transbordement en vrac des marchandises était trop long. Les standards donnés par l’ISO n’empêchent pas d’autres tailles d’exister, employées par certains transporteurs. Cependant l’immense majorité des conteneurs a des dimensions extérieures standards : longueur de 20 pieds (6,096 m) ou 40 pieds (12,192 m) ; largeur de 8 pieds (2,438 m) ; hauteur de 8,5 pieds (2,591 m). Les dimensions intérieures sont les suivantes : longueur de 20 pieds dry acier (5,905 m) ou 40 pieds (12,04 m) largeur de 2,33 m hauteur de 2,38 m hauteur passage de porte 2,30 m On trouve de plus en plus fréquemment des conteneurs high cube de 9 pieds (2,743 m) ou 9,5 pieds (2,896 m). En fonction des besoins des chargeurs de multiples dimensions sont apparues.

Isolation thermique types «ISOL CARGO®» et «ISOL CONTENEUR®» : CEA : Container Equipement et Arimage Conteneur en cours de chargement L’isolation thermique « passive » des marchandises pour tout mode de transport (aérien, maritime -conteneur -, routier et ferroviaire) a trouvé une solution économique. Les variations de température entre le jour (chaud) et la nuit (froide) sont la cause de nombreuses réclamations des destinataires (modification de qualité (vin), échauffement ou refroidissement préjudiciables aux marchandises, etc). Intérieur conteneur isolé Fût Coiffe thermique Cette protection thermique est utilisée pour des colis, palettes, conteneurs maritimes et tout type de conditionnement de transport. Caractéristiques : Ce composite thermique « isolant » ISOL-CARGO® et ISOL-CONTENEUR® en PP se compose d’une ou deux couches de bulles d’air recouvertes de chaque côté d’un film en aluminium ou d’un film en polyester. En option, un film en polyester est contrecollé sur le film « alu » apportant une protection supplémentaire « anti -oxydation». Applications :

10 Basic Facts You Should Know About Modular Homes What is a modular home? A modular home is one that is built indoors in a factory-like setting. The finished products are covered and transported to their new locations where they will be assembled by a builder. A modular home is not a mobile home; it is simply a home that is built off-site as opposed to on-site. How do modular homes differ from houses built on-site? Because modular homes are built indoors they can be completed in a matter of a few weeks as opposed to months. Modular Home Facts: Modular homes appraise the same as their on-site built counterparts do. Do all Modular homes look alike? Contrary to popular misconception, modular homes do not all look alike. How is a modular home is assembled? A factory-built home starts out as sections that have already been built in a climate controlled area. It is important to talk to your manufacturer as each manufacturer operates with a different set of guidelines. Are Modular home prices more or less expensive than those built on site?

B.H.M. - F.A.Q. - Eco-structure 20 Pourquoi construire avec une structure en acier recyclé ? Une construction en acier recyclé vous permettra d’obtenir une solidité accrue par rapport à une construction standard en bois ou parpaing. Le bâtiment sera très stable, c’est-à-dire qu’il ne travaillera pas, car il ne nécessite pas de dalle béton et il est moins soumis à l’affaissement du terrain dans le temps. Retour à la liste des questions Quels sont les avantages de la structure en acier d’un container ? Les avantages sont nombreux : Économie d’argent de l’ordre de 20% à 50% par rapport à une construction en bois ou standard.Rigidité supérieure aux normes du Bâtiment, un container peut recevoir une toiture végétale sans trop de renfort.Rapidité de construction.Bâtiment respectant le développement durable et le recyclage.Résistance aux rongeurs, aux insectes, aux moisissures, etc. L’isolation prévue est-elle suffisante ? Est-ce que ma commune accepte ce type de construction ? Ai-je besoin d’un permis de construire (P.C.)?

40-Foot Cargo Containers into Stylish Small-Home Spaces Stylish, simple, sleek and modern … are still not words we are entirely used to using when we describe the cold, cramped, enclosed rectangular boxes known best for shipping freight around the world on giant water vessels. More than many container home concepts, however, this design manages to bring together the best of modular thinking, mobile living and comfortable dwelling. As any architect or designer who has attempted to plan or construct a cargo container home no doubt knows: the limiting factor is not length but width. For a temporary and mobile home, twenty to forty feet long is fine – but eight feet wide is tough to work with even if you are comfortable in relatively cramped living quarters. The trick in this rather stylish (well, for the inside of a shipping container anyway) solution involves pop-out side spaces that make more rooms when the house is sitting still but slide neatly back into their slots for maximum portability.

Untitled Document LOT-EK is the New York based studio of Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano. LOT-EK’s Mobile Dwelling Unit (MDU) began as an experimental design project in 1999. A constructed version features in a current traveling exhibition LOT-EK: Mobile Dwelling Unit which was organized by the University Art Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) in conjunction with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. MDU is a 40ft shipping container that has been modified into a relocatable dwelling. The plan below shows the layout of the slide-out sub-volumes: (the thumbnail images click through to larger versions) LOT-EK also envisage MDU harbors, located in major cities, that can hold large quantities of racked MDU’s plugged into infrastructure services (plumbing, data etc). Slide show: Further images of the MDU are available as a slide show. Share your thoughts on the MDU in the fabchat discussion area - you'll see a thread in the ContainerBay forum
