architect uses shipping containers to
Shipping container architecture is often a sort of architecture using steel intermodal containers
(shipping containers) as structural element, because of the inherent strength, wide availability and
comparatively low expense.
After buying a 3.5-acre stretch of land in Topanga, California, in which a rustic 750-square-foot
cabin already stood, architect Christof Jantzen put down finding ways to expand the cabin to
house his class of five.
He opted to complete the event using five recycled shipping containers and been able to create a
wonderful mixture of the previous and also the new in the resulting home. Adding the shipping
containers expanded how big your home to approximately 1550-square-feet.
Speed of construction was crucial that you Jantzen and that he were able to build the brand new
home in a mere four weeks.

decision to be expanded the home using shipping containers was cost. Shipping container homes
cost roughly $100 to $150 per square feet to build, and that is a lot less expensive than alternative
construction options. Jantzen, that's the principal of the Studio Jantzen architecture firm in Los
Angeles, combined a lot of the firm's existing designs to generate his home. Your building fell to
Eric Engheben of 44 West Construction.
This is not the first container structure that Jantzen has completed, when he also completed a
poolhouse in Brentwood, California, a desert container house, and an 18-container, 2,400-squarefoot house in Topanga.
Jantzen purchased the five shipping containers in Long Beach, California where they were also
modified previous to transport for the building site. The sides and inner housings from the
containers were laser cut to allow the five of which to become assembled together. The container
seams were welded together, along with the walls and ceilings were furred with rigid insulation
and take care of using plywood.
On-page, Jantzen first gutted the existing cottage, and installed a brand new kitchen and
bathroom inside, before he added the shipping containers for it. The primary living area and
bedrooms are all located from the shipping container part of the house.
Over the entire residence is a single-span, corrugated metal roof with site-welded tubes mounted
atop the perimeters on the containers
The top also hangs over the cottage the main home, thus creating unity inside design, as it offers
a covered patio area while you're watching home. Furthermore, it provides defense against the
rain and wind, even though the interstitial space provides cross-ventilation intended to mitigate
convection heating in the containers.
Large floor to ceiling windows were installed in the docking ends in the containers to permit the
