Shipping Container Vacation House Wins [AC-CA] Competition

Shipping Container Vacation House Wins [AC-CA] Competition

The two-story, 3660 square-foot vacation house, which will be built on Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia from a shipping container has been awarded first prize in the [AC-CA] Architectural Competition. The home was designed by Czech architect Ales Javurek, while the house he designed will stand on a hillside overlooking the ocean and will take full advantage of the gorgeous, panoramic views of Bondi Beach. The planned project is sustainable not only because it is made from a decommissioned shipping container, but also because it will preserve the surrounding area’s landscape, while it is also designed to take into account the area’s climate conditions.
