Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects decided to be one of the firms that created an innovative solution to the thoughts and inherent need for disaster relief housing. With all of the excess shipping containers that exist– Yoshimura Architects crafted a prototype for disaster relief housing.
Two containers are placed side by side, and able to be transported to their destination and then joined together to create one space. In one half, the container serves as a living space and bedroom; while the other half utilizes all of the areas with plumbing needs such as a kitchen/dining room and bathroom. Wood clad walls make it warm and home like inside, and the exterior facade stays simple with metal and glazed punch outs.
