In Brazil, it was the architects of Casa Container Marilia who built the Hanging House, a 238 square meter raised container house, which was built with 80 percent recycled materials. The container house was designed as a country house integrating into the local ecosystem while being sustainable and recyclable, it is based on the use of demolition wood indoors, and on the installation of a green roof with reuse of rainwater. Thermal and acoustic insulation is also the strengths of the house. This container house has chosen an interior design based on recycled wood. The incredible shipping container design has an amazing outdoor deck which brings the outdoors in and extends the indoor space making it feel much larger than it is. The use of plenty of windows and sliding glass doors is also what gives this shipping container home a feeling of spaciousness and a connection with nature.
Outdoor living spaces are essential to everyday life. Many homes have beautiful lawns and spaces, but they aren’t considered living spaces until they’re livable. Many people strive to have beautiful home interiors but they often forget about the importance of outdoor living spaces. Outdoor living spaces are one of the best ways to add space to your home. When you have a well-groomed outdoor area it adds usable space to your home. Instead of simply settling for the space of your interior, you can take advantage of your entire home property and create more space to live in.
Outdoor spaces are more customizable than interior spaces as it's up to you to decide what function they will serve. For example, if you want or need another living room area, you can build one in the form of an outdoor patio. All this extra space will make your home feel larger than it is and more useful overall. An outdoor living space will also increase the value of your home. Your home value will increase if you focus on updating your outdoor living space. A home design with a functional and stylish outdoor space is more appealing to buyers. Plus, it increases the curb appeal of your home. Even if you are not planning to sell your home soon, its value will hold through time, and you’ll get to enjoy all the benefits that an outdoor living space offers in the meantime.
Outdoor living spaces also offer wellness benefits. When you have a functional outdoor living space it encourages you to spend more time outside. It's a well-known fact that spending more time outdoors helps to improve both mental and physical health. People who spend significant time outdoors are more likely to be happier and healthy in their lives. An outdoor space will allow you and your family to spend more time outdoors and breathe in the fresh air. When you are looking to make an outdoor living space, a great place to start is with your landscaping and hardscaping. With some work, you can achieve an outdoor space that is beautiful, functional, and perfect for your home and family.
