Container Home Village in Copenhagen

This container home village is an awesome solution to the Copenhagen housing crisis.

With more and more students flooding into the city, there remains a shortage of housing. To combat the problem, Danish company CPH Containers and architect Søren Nielsen created a student village from shipping containers. Because the area isn’t zoned for permanent structures, these transportable houses are a perfect substitute and can come and go without leaving a trace.

On the outside, this looks like a modern cubic structure. There’s a clean mix of grey and white colors, a rooftop patio with plants as well as a ground-level porch for outdoor living.

Step into the home and you’ll see the inner large room which includes the kitchen, a sofa bed, and the table. The entire interior is flanked with pine. The bathroom is tucked in the alcove diagonally opposite from the sofa bed area. Kudos for creativity!

    This house is just perfect. I only wish I could have seen the bathroom, but considering how awesome the rest of the house is, I have no doubt that I would find it at least satisfactory. Beautiful!

      Kat Hayzer, they state on their home page that the houses are insulated and heated. (They don’t state how).
      And they must be, otherwise they wouldn’t be legal according to building regulations in Denmark

        A container formerly used for refrigerated cargo would work. They come insulated.

    This looks delightful as a single tiny home. I dont see the village. Did I miss it?

  • Marcy February 20, 2016, 1:19 pm

    I can really imagine myself in this place.

    I like this idea. My wife and I have thought about doing something similar to this. We were thinking 2- 40’s with 2- 20’s on top, allowing a large upper deck in front. Now I’m wondering if it is necessary. I might change a few things, but only to make it more personal to us. Love it!

      sorry i hit report comment instead of reply…i especially like the way the two containers are OFFSET to allow private decks off the ends.
