Residence CAC / Nova Lima / 210m² / 2014

Long used for transportation, containers have been gaining a new role in the architectural world, turning into beautiful homes due to the many aesthetic and functional possibilities and the great appeal of sustainability. For a young couple who love to ride the world on their motorbike, the house was designed in steel, masonry, containers and rags by architect and designer Cioli Cássius Stancioli. The architect took advantage of the uneven terrain and inserted the house in a very green environment with mountains around Nova Lima. The first floor was structured in a 40-foot container, finished in yellow automotive paint and bonded with the owners’ last name. This space, owned by the owner, is the garage and workshop of his motorcycle; Its access has received lateral landscaping, harmoniously accompanying the pagination of the floor. The main entrance is by an uphill access, with granilite floating floor, illuminated by solar lamps. The house in mixed construction received white masonry walls and steel structure. The kitchen was also developed in a 20 foot container. The car garage is designed in a steel frame with corrugated sheet metal lining with black paint finish and swing gate. This architectural project adds value by enabling greater agility in clean, dry construction, more affordable and utilizing the sustainable appeal of containers. Studio Cioli Stancioli.
