Shipping Container 2.0v

The basis of COTOOP is to provide two offices within a low-budget shipping container. The designers, TOOP Architectuur, explain that not only are shipping containers affordable, but they are also easy to move and have a strong formal identity thanks to their recognizable dimension. Further, shipping containers are relatively easy to transform as openings can be made in different places without damaging the integrity of the frame.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

This forest clearing addressing a pocket of rainforest in the Noosa hinterland is approached through a typical neighbourhood of rural houses and acreage dwellings. The journey to the house continues from the street via a winding bush track through the forest which acts as a threshold between the constructed world and that of the clearing, a place remnant of early settlement in the region; a camp.

Flanking the northern side of the camp is a lush tropical wall of trees, 40m tall. A small creek along this boundary also provides a riparian corridor for local flora and fauna.

 

Due to the limited size of the clearing the house needed to address the full height of the forest Ďwallí and look to capture the sky above, or risk a feeling of confinement. The scale and density of the surrounding forest also reduces winter sun penetration to the site and ultimately creates its own micro-climate.

 

The brief called for a 3 bedroom family dwelling with a central open plan living and kitchen space. Responding to this and the unique site, the living space feeds to east and west corridors providing bedroom access, and nooks for study, day bed and storage. The pavilion runs along the east-west contour allowing all rooms to enjoy the rainforest view to the north maximizing winter solar gain.

 

The architectural response is a dual concept, pairing an operable insulated box for cooler months that opens to a tent-like amenity in warmer months. The walls, or doors, of the box slide open manually, while the roof, or lid, has an automated sliding operation. With the roof fully open the translucent tent membrane comes into view and a new volume, light, and material is experienced. As the doors slide open the forest wall becomes an architectural element; a natural wall that contains a broader space of the house plan, stretching it across the remaining clearing and garden.
