Here is another ‘container house’! Port-a-Bach is created by atelierworkshop from Wellington, New Zealand. This portable cabin sleeps two adults and two children, is power, water and sewer independent, has one wall that folds down to create an open living space and folds back up to secure the unit for storage or relocation. This cabin comes with a kitchen and complete bath, and can be hooked up to external services, as well. Isn’t it great?!
Atelierworkshop was founded in 2000 by Cècile Bonnifait and William Giesenbased on a duality of thought and language as a working process. Both trained architects, they each have different and diverse architectural experience in various parts of the world that combine professional work and research. Their approach is orientated towards reconnecting people with a physical reality, a territory, its history and a cultural context.
Their philosophy: “Our architecture seeks to reveal the landscape and the environment through innovation and common sense. Our projects are developed from a concern for forming one body with the site. Without compromising on design, we put priority on finding sustainable solutions. It is within this dynamic that our team at atelierworkshop creates contemporary architecture and designs”. For more information, please visit atelierworkshop’s website.
