Concept
Recycling a used 40 feet cargo container a multifunctional, portable module was developed by a team of 20 engineers and consultants – creating an innovative and very flexible concept that allows multiple use ranging from hotel or hostel, temporary home rental to student apartments.

The concepts main feature is the extensive prefabrication in series resulting in a very short construction time and an outstanding quality of construction. Further strengths lie in the reversibility and the scalability due to the modular plug-and-play design and hence the high flexibility.

Particularly convincing for the modules occupants are the appealing and high-quality design as well as the pleasant indoor climate. Converting the existing container, its fundamental advantage, the closed structural system, takes effect – one can even hear this, by not hearing anything from ones neighbor.

Design
A reduced but warm design was created. Design classics mixed with newly designed furniture and accessories are woven into a homogenous structure. Pleasing colours and high-quality materials conveying a completely homely feeling to the occupier.
