The topics of ecology in architecture can also be addressed through the recovery of facilities at the end of their useful life. This is the idea of the project as part of GreenFrameHouse an architecture firm Astori De Ponti, and like a magic, it gives new life to unused containers and turning them into housing design full of charm.
Sustainability, in fact, recovery, and in this sense the use of a container structure is the anchor project to a world more responsible also in urban.
The project emphasis to life-cycle of these structures that are almost magically transformed into residential buildings through the combination of several modules and each room is a container, the design is futuristic and sustainable spaces and even bright.
GreenFrameHouse preserves the charm of the container industry, but returning a second life to a structure that would otherwise have to be decommissioned and create, with its rolling, a significant environmental impact.
The architects explaining their work: “The project comes from a Green Frame House meeting between ideas and dreams: the dream of returning life, meaning and value to the container, intended as the subject unused the idea of defining a sustainable forms of experience Consolidated live from a module industry. The exhibition presented at the fair Green Frame House is in this sense a sort of yard work in progress of a project possibly more ambitious and more far-reaching, which aims to make this meeting a reality.
The exacerbation of the conflict between finished and unfinished, including domestic interior and exterior living and corroded, aims specifically to enhance the latent population vocation of these modular elements. The attempt is to bring a small additional contribution to restoring the dignity of container to form a transient or non-living alternative. “
The project is a guest of GreenFrameHouse furniture fair Abitare il Tempo 2010, Verona.
