Cross-shaped shipping container home introduction:

The intention to construct such a beautiful building is to use waste materials to produce a prototype that can be easily constructed and would be entirely self-sufficient. Meanwhile, to spend less labour. Built from two shipping containers – one placed vertically and another balanced horizontally, the home would contain four storeys inside a cross-shaped structure. And according to the designer’s idea, despite the similarity of the cross form, it is not linked with religious symbols.

The exterior of the building would be clad with timber and the roof would be covered with corrugated iron sheets. Solar panels could provide heating, while rainwater would be collected for reuse and a composting toilet would be installed.

The designer wants to construct the building with materials that would be made before the building process, could be installed on difficult relief and could be easily transportable with hands.So finally, an energy-independent building is the best option.
