Among its main characteristics we have a modular housing construction from 3 maritime containers of 40 feet long, so it has a total useful area of 90 sqm.
This version of the “Kubo” modular house is a Spanish project created by the firm Basoko, which states among its work premises: “how to innovate and how to incorporate new aspects into our projects”, says Jaime Garcés, promoter of the Basque company project.
This PREFABRICATED HOUSE PLAN is made up of 3 shipping containers, arranged in a “U” shape, with the central container resting (as a kind of bridge) on the two end containers.
In this way, there is an open space (central space) on the ground floor, which would function as a terrace or garden.
This modular house layout is over 2 floors with a metal STAIR DESIGN in L-shape that connects the two levels.
The use of 2 floors offers day and rest separated zones, and different exterior and interior areas.
The outdoor terrace of the house can be perfectly integrated with nature. Under the container, a rest area has been defined.
On the other hand, on the roof of the upper container, a terrace with artificial grass has been set up.
Interior Layout of a Container House
Its interior spaces include a bedroom with a dressing room, a work area, a kitchen with an island and a living room with a fireplace.
The Kubo modular house has the following distribution:
- Ground Floor: an open concept space with a living room, a fireplace, dining room and kitchen in the same container. In addition, it has a porch and terrace.
- First Floor: has a terrace and a master suite , which includes a work area and a dressing room.
Another of its characteristics is its interior lighting design, using modern-style luminaires.
Interior Design of a Container House
Kubo is a container house that has been decorated based on industrialized wood (with its particular textures and tones) in combination with elements in black, such as door and window frames, furniture and interior equipment.
The containers of this prefabricated house offer the possibility of great natural lighting, with large glass windows. Two terraces help to increase the luminosity of the interior.
The interior design of the bedroom is very cozy. Using very few elements, a pleasant environment has been created, with natural elements and materials.
The furniture has been made to measure, combining the same range of colors and textures, in black and wood.
Energy saving is one of the benefits of this modular house construction. Inside, all the walls are covered with sheets of industrialized wood and in its interior chamber, it has thermal and acoustic insulation, reducing the thermal load that needs to be transformed.
For Garcés, promoter of the project, ” it maintains all the qualities of a conventional home, without losing comfort or exquisiteness in the design and interior decoration.”
