C-Home, a home made of containers



A single-family home made of containers. In Claverack – Red Mills (USA) LOT-EK studio, founded by Italian architects Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano, created C-Home Hudson, a home conceived to upcycle 40-foot shipping containers.

In C-Home, six shipping containers provide 1,920 square feet of living space on two levels: the house features an open layout with living room, dining and kitchen on the ground level, and two-bedroom suites on the level above, each accessible by its own stair, each with full bathroom and walk-in closet.

Large glass walls provide cross light and ventilation to all areas, with large decks to expand the open living space outdoor, into the back and front yards; in addition, an external stair provides access to the green roof and deck.

C-Home is an impressive example of reinvention of existing things, proposing a new point of view on objects apparently far from the visionary world of architecture.
