The size of shipping containers probably makes them very useful for constructing living quarters, and that is the reason why we see so many interesting designs from what once used to be plain old shipping containers. But that isn’t all the story, the 20 container cabins to be built at the Camp Emerald Bay will also include reclaimed lumber, durable rubber flooring, LED lighting, and solar photovoltaics.
The roof serves to let in natural light during the day, and is a very striking part of these cabins. The roof was made from a stretched silicone-coated fiberglass material. There are a number of people and firms involved in the project, the main being Richard Hammond and Gensler’s Santa Monica office.
The makeover does give slightly better surroundings to the camp. Also, it is well placed to educate young scouts about the environment and the ecology. That in itself is a wonderful investment to make.
