PilarBox Family housing project
Provided there is a surface of 75 square meters and a truck can get there, the conditions are completed to install a home for up to a family of four, built from shipping containers and which has been furnished and decorated.
This is the proposal made at the 45th Fair of Decoration and Furniture of the European Capital of Furniture in Paços de Ferreira and goes by the name of Pillar Box. It is a modular house based on five containers that would otherwise go to waste, but can be added more modules according to customer preferences (eg, a garage).
Always taking into account the environment, Pilar Box uses sustainable energy resources that allow good performance at thermal and acoustic level. Also in construction, waste is prevented because the materials are reused.
José Torres Pinto was responsible for the manufacture and assembly of steel constructions, coatings, aluminum and glass.
