The Assemblage

As the additional construction elements are delivered on site, the team embarks on the assemblage process for the first floor frame, roof support and staircase access. The design is aimed to allow the family to expand the living space across a new level, with the additional load to be distributed along the structural frame of the existing container. Steel connector pieces allow for the decking, staircase, balcony and handrail elements to be easily dismantled and reassembled, in line with the construction flexibility standards we aimed towards during the concept development phase.

As the day comes to an end, the shipyard beauty is almost unrecognizable, its hard-edged frame softened by the newly added textures and volumes. Stamping across the wooden deck and staircase steps, carefully scouting every corner of the structure with their tireless, glimmering eyes, the children roll onto the floor, bursting into a peal of laughter.
