MB Consultancy visualizes shipping containers micro-homes as affordable housing in Socotra island.
The main conceptual design is based on affordable housing, eco-friendly design. We propose a housing unit of 60m2 as two (40 feet) shipping containers laid next to each other and joined together with a rectangular extension.
The overall master plan is made of 12 individual units. The design of recycled shipping containers was chosen for the project to keep costs low and allow off-site prefabrication while re-using existing structures would have an environmental benefit.
The Hajhir massif – mountain range situated on the island of Socotra, Yemen, is the highest point of the island.
Dragon blood tree is a dragon tree native to the Socotra archipelago, part of Yemen, located in the Arabian Sea. It is so-called due to the red sap that the trees produce.
