Building The Future


France architects Cattani realized a nice conversion project by transforming old shipping containers into students accommodation. 
"The new town is the result of the transformation of old containers in modular housing units equipped with every comfort. Mounted on a metal grid, the containers have given shape to a four-story building that houses 100 apartments of 24 square meters each."
To ensure maximum heat and sound insulation, the walls of the adjacent containers to the outside and those that divide the different units have been coated with fire walls in reinforced concrete, and come within layers of rubber to dampen vibrations.
The project is called Cité and is located in Le Havre, France.
