According to Site-Specific's website: This small container home was built by our collaborator – BlueBrown recently. It is a small home with one bedroom, one bathroom and a living area for a young family in Thailand.It was designed using two twenty-foot containers and a prefabricated bathroom unit, as an exercise in the making of a good, affordable housing for Thais which our government cannot seems to manage. This home is on the outskirt of Bangkok where temperature is always high. The house is insulated with recycled insulation material with a layer of roof above the containers to prevent the heat transmission into habitable areas.
