Cite A Docks 01

Consisting of 100 apartments, this student container housing is situated in LeHavre in France. The new town is the result of the transformation of old containers in modular housing units equipped with every comfort. Mounted on a metal grid, the containers have given shape to a four-story building that houses 100 apartments of 24 square meters each.

To keep the student container housing apartments firm, a metal frame acts as a structural support to hold the old container, thus enabling new space for walkways, patios and balconies.
