SeaUA Shipping Container House – USA

Hi everybody

Today we will show you container house from USA.

The four-story, 24-unit apartment building made of repurposed shipping containers in D.C.’s Brookland.

D.C. is home to two other prominent structures produced using shipping containers, including El Rey, the Mexican lager garden on U Street, and Half Street Fairgrounds close to Nationals Park. Be that as it may, this is the city’s first lodging venture made of sea containers.

Architect Travis Price started construction on the project, called SeaUA, in July after Catholic University graduates Sean Joiner and Matthew Grace came to Price for help rebuilding a property they knocked down.

The lofts are structured as “shared housing.” Each floor has an enormous normal region with a lounge room and a kitchen, in addition to six 240-square-foot rooms, each with its own washroom and study. Six containers comprise a story of the structure, and they are arranged in two lines of three.

The inside walls of the containers are cut out to create the open common room; the ends of the containers constitute the bedrooms and bathrooms.

For Price, using sea containers for building construction makes sense, ecologically.

“There are over 700,000 sea containers sitting foul, going nowhere in the U.S. Remember, we imported all the stuff. All of your iPhones came in those containers, but we’re not sending anything back,” Price said in an earlier interview with WTOP.

The units have sustainable engineered wood interiors and incorporate other energy- conserving designs. The design is also an attempt to provide modern apartments to D.C.’s growing millennial population.

The project initially attracted some criticism from residents living in the Northeast neighborhood, which is known for its traditional bungalows and Victorians.

“We really try to bring out the spirit of the times and the spirit of the place; we’re not looking to do just garish things for the sake of shock. This is really well thought out,” Price said in response to the criticism.

Price says he hopes to build a second, similar project in the area. He also envisions floating sea container homes on D.C.’s Potomac waterfront.
