Yamamar Repurposes Two Shipping Containers and Turns Them Into a Private Residence
By Magaly • May 10, 2017
This cabin was built by the architectural firm Yamamar, in an idyllic location next to an old creek bed with amazing views over its surroundings. The area consists of 1000 acres of land. The client had spent many years hunting in this area while sleeping in a small old trailer.
The cabin was transported to the final location and placed in a plot of land owned by the client, the specific place having been previously chosen by the client and the firm – a pristine natural forest in North California’s Mount Lassen area, in the USA.
It is embedded into the thick vegetation of the area, so that it receives shade from the trees that surround it.
The project consists of two repurposed shipping containers, and its compact interior is equipped with a small kitchen and one bedroom with a large window that offers incredible views.
Its walls, completely lined with wood, give a rustic touch to the space and fuse with the exterior, maintaining the same dynamic.
Its sides have been provided with sliding doors, which allows the unit to be ventilated.
At night, the view of the cabin, hidden in the green landscape and with the internal light reflected on the outside, gives us a magnificent image.
