Container Student Housing

This project focuses on the configuration of a residential space for students for the Cyprus University of Technology in Limassol. Its main idea was the usage of prefabricated containers, which provide the flexibility of not only creating accommodation spaces but also the configuration of activity spaces for a student's needs. At the same time, the arrangement of the "boxes" is performed in a modular design, thus the protruded box, contributes to the creation of covered outdoor area for the other one. Subsequently, the configuration of the façades of the containers is investigated, which results with an alternation of colors and patterns, providing the possibility for the differentiation of the appearance of the container. As a result, the use of this prefabricated boxes provides the possibility for lower construction costs and time.
