Istanbul housing project

rejiggering, stacking and linking rugged and versatile freight shipping containers and transforming them into fully inhabitable homes.
This is the mantra for the new A++ development in Istanbul – Turkey.

An excellent method of reusing — there are more than 300 million shipping containers sitting empty at ports around the world — In their most basic form, recycled shipping containers offer a quick and inexpensive solution to housing needs; Container homes are a fast, green, economical and surprisingly flexible alternative to traditional houses as they provide modern dwellings for any household size – from individual to family and community housing.

A++ has develop a set of homes that uses container steel structure to replace the standard structure of a home for a fraction of its cost.
To avoid its sizes limitation ( a 20″ high cube container is not more then 2,30 mtr with and 2,66 high) We have increased the space with additional structure turning the container built home into a proper sized one.

Containers / modular / prefab homes will offer solutions to the country housing shortage for the deprived, under-privileged and low income populations by providing a total system for basic, low-cost, quality built housing. this solution is the lowest in cost, most rapidly erected, simplest in design, and most structurally sound basic housing in existence today
