Again a container to solve temporary housing, cheap and quick construction. And in this case with a surprising use: to become a holiday home near the beach. In a solo spot Huentelauquén, 260 km north of Santiago, Pablo Errazuriz architect has designed this shelter on the beach thanks to a container of 24 m2 which is complemented by a large space, and a tower that acts as a reservoir drinking water. The container holds only the kitchen and bathroom, leaving the entire outdoor living space as the principal. A wooden deck extends from the container and is covered with canvas to create a shady area. Additionally, a series of gravel courtyards can accommodate occasional visits in tents. As a final element, another amazing building: a tower that includes the “engine room” on the ground floor, one bedroom on the first floor and a water tank on the top level. Constructively, the container is covered with rusted steel plates on the outside and DM cladding painted white inside. The wooden terrace supports a metal structure of the same dimensions as the container, that holds a PVC fabric. The courtyards are bordered by stone walls containing river sand and gravel.
