container guest house, poteet architects







item: container guest house
designer: poteet architects, texas

comments: container guest house is small in size but big on beauty, efficiency and reuse of materials. the planted roof off the container top allows for air flow and reduces heat gain. grey water from the sink and shower are collected and used for the planted roof. the toilet is composting. recycled telephone poles are the foundation that the structure floats on. hvac pads made from recycled bottles in a steel frame are used as a deck. exterior light fixtures come from tractor disc plow blades. the interior is insulated with spray foam and lined with bamboo plywood for the floor and walls. i love this too, too much.
