PORT-A-BACH CONTAINER HOME By Atelierworkshop Architects

Your home is your world, and with the Port-a-Bach Container Home, a concept created by the Atelierworkshop Architects, you can take that world with you wherever you decide to move. Atelierworkshop believe up-cycling containers can be an effective answer for large scale projects and if portability, site access, robustness, security are issues. This home is a compact space made out of an upcycled container unit, giving it new purpose and providing you with a private space that is anything but containing. Each of the sides as well as the front wall, open up to become a patio, a back yard exit and a side door. This literal open concept prevents you from feeling confined or limited in your living space, allowing you to enjoy the outdoors and the world around you. When all closed up, the container provides security and peace of mind. The Port-a-Bach Container Home uses solar and wind power. The Port-a-Bach prototype was built in Hangzhou, China and shipped to New Zealand. It is now part of the permanent collection of Puke Ariki Museum New Plymouth. We have also developed prototypes of fittings that use the existing container connections to attached solar and wind equipment. Atelierworkshop’s Port-a-Bach is not in production and require appropriate commercial partners in order to mass produce it and its derivatives. For more information, just follow the link bellow.
