The cargo containers They have become a real problem for the environment since they represent a very important source of “garbage”. Many times we even find them lost in the oceans when some freighter loses them on the high seas. Already on land, when they finish their useful life, they become a problem when they are recycled due to their size. However, because they are very resistant steel products, not everything is lost.
Some companies, as well as offices of architects and designers have been given the task of recycling the famous sea freight containers to make them home, often surprising. Today we will discover a hotel whose characteristic is to have been created with cargo containers that have been adapted to be dormitories. Flophouze Hotel It is located in the state of Texas, in the United States, and has been a creation of the office Recycling The Past.
Recycling The Past is a company dedicated to creating decorative and architectural concept through the use of recycled materials and objects. From decorative pieces to more ambitious projects such as this hotel, through everyday objects such as kitchen furniture, lamps among many other things. In order to carry out the Flophouze Hotel project, they had to gather about six containers on the same land from which this new lodging proposal would come out in this part of the southern state.
Each bedroom is a single container It is presented as a suite or studio in which each guest can enjoy great comfort or as a common dormitory room with several beds. Since the original size of the containers have been respected, and these are 40 cubic feet, each bungalow has very respectable dimensions that make it quite cozy. To keep the structure strong, each end of the containers has been opened to let light and air through. In addition, side terraces have been installed that give us a very cozy atmosphere.
The interior of each bedroom is decorated with recycled elements produced by the same Recycling The Past agency that also proposes a 20% discount to its customers for the purchase of more than 100 USD. The cherry on the cake is the pool also made with a container that looks pretty cool. One more way to make your stay in this curious and peculiar hotel lost in a dusty town in South Texas attractive.
