Homebox : Tiny, Movable 3-Story shipping container vertical home

Han Slawik based his Homebox on the shipping container model for its transport capabilities, universal dimensions and usefulness. But at the same time, wear, repair and maintenance of steel materials is costly, not to mention living in a steel box isn’t very cozy. Slawik wanted to create a housing concept using the best parts of cargotecture — but he wanted to be able to modify it easier, make it more efficient and make it more comfortable for the resident. Homebox has the same dimensions as a international standardized shipping container, but it’s designed to sit vertically rather than horizontally.
