Interesting and Fascinating Container House from Guatemala

Hi everybody

We continue to discover for you. Our container house on today’s tour is from Antigua Guatemala, Sacatepequez, Guatemala.

Located in Antigua Guatemala, Casa Ecco is designed to live in harmony with nature, from its environmentally friendly architecture to its construction using recycled materials.

Casa Ecco is a luxury home in La Antigua, Guatemala, using mostly recycled materials.
While designing Casa Ecco, special attention was paid to many factors such as respect for nature, adaptation to the existing land structure and sustainability.

The management of this project, which is one of the sustainable projects we want to see everywhere in the world, was carried out by P&A Patricia Arenas Architecture Studio.

The project is one of the rare sustainable buildings on Guatemala. If you want this home stay experience, which is both sustainable and extremely luxurious, you can stay here for $1000 per night via AirBNB.

In recent years, sustainable home architecture and homes using recycled shipping containers are on the rise to become a major trend. When designing a sustainable home project, many details need to be considered.
Let’s talk a little bit about the most important of them.

In addition to a correct and efficient use of energy, the need to improve the thermal and acoustic behavior of the structure of the containers is very important. Containers need to improve their natural ventilation while improving their insulation.

The most important feature of these types of projects is that they reduce waste and energy consumption to the lowest possible level. Because of these abilities, Casa Ecco is a great example of sustainable architecture.
