The Cité is the Dock a project by Cattani Architects located in Le Havre, France. A four-story building that houses 100 apartments made of old shipping containers. All rooms with bathrooms, kitchen, free wifi and has been carefully designed to have a great heat and sound insulation. Much of the success of the design is the way the containers were distributed creating empty spaces and common areas between the flats. The location near the water creates a very modern and industrial feeling.
qubic In the Houthavens, a former harbour area on the West of the city centre of Amsterdam, 1000 students will temporarily be housed here. Until the new housing developments start, these students will live on a ship (the Rochdale One), in former asylumseeker-housing and in 715 container-houses, that were designed bij hvdn architects. The project was designed and built within 12 months. The architects made a prefabricated system out of containers of 9 by 3 meters.
