You could even make it out of steel shipping containers.  That would give you all the stiff edges that you desire.

Nice suggestion there. I thought of that too but isn't that unsustainable since the humid is high on a mountain? Correct me if i'm wrong. :)

Steel shipping containers withstand high humidity and salt quite well if painted.  Their lifespan in use is twenty years, but 80 years or more is not out of the question if properly weatherproofed and maintained.

So that's why it can withstand ocean while shipping. Thanks for the information. I'll keep that for later.

I had a discussion today with a friend about this.  We figured out that shipping containers are designed to support 330 psf, so one 8'x40' (29.68 square meter) container should be able to hold 105,600 pounds (47,900 kg) without failing.  That pretty much makes the possibilities endless as a structural element.

We were discussing the possibility of using them as storm shelters, since this part of the US is prone to tornadoes.  He asked if the weight of soil would be a problem.  I don't think so!

My question is, if it's that simple to use a shipping container as a bunk or permanent housing why isn't it a thing yet? I don't know the condition in US but here in my country whenever I see a shipping container used as a form of housing, it doesn't last that long because of rust even if well painted. Still, I found it sustainable but only for a temporary.

My guess would be it has something to do with airborne salt.  If you live near the coast (as I'm guessing most people in the Philippines do), then that may have something to do with it.  The service life of shipping containers is only twenty years., but they can last much longer if properly sealed and treated.  It may have to do with the quality of paint, too.  Here in the US some people have used shipping containers for storm shelters or bunkers but the containers must be treated with a protective plastic called 'Rhino liner' or similar to withstand moisture and not rust.  But that treatment is expensive and may not be available in some places.

In the U.S. we have a different problem, though: over-regulation.  Many cities will not issue building permits for such structures because there are no building codes written (yet) for it.  Without those codes in place, that also makes banks unwilling to issue loans to build with shipping containers, and it makes insurance companies hesitant to underwrite insurance policies.  That will probably change in time, as more cities allow the use and demand an ICC common code (see downtowncontainerpark.com/ as an example)

First time hearing Rhino liner too and I don't think it's locally available here, YET. 

I like the idea of the Container Park. It's very innovative but I don't think it's aesthetically pleasing (based on the pictures I searched on Google). Well, I guess, if I see it first hand it will be different.

Yup. Because every mountain side is in the middle of a fucking nowhere. As of a dream, that's how I like it. Thanks for the comment. :)

I have read it.. 
'The problem is to create a place for me, my girlfriend, & friends.."

Bachelor pad with a girlfriend is fun..:D 

I think when you give something a name, it has so show in the work.. Im not critisizing the architecture, but Im critisizing the name. 
He gave it a specific name so I can respond to it.
The internet is to blame for this, it gives you access to every new building being built today so 95% of fucking works just look the same - Including the use of shipping containers for that matter.
And all of the conceptual side of it.. Im mean common, the curtain wall because it shows you're an open person? I dont buy it. 

This is in the middle of Fucking Nowhere, so you dont need to pay much attention to context even.. focus on design. 
The stories are just stories - some will buy them and some would not.

and for additional informations, I'm not copying designs from the internet. Call me Korni, but it's from my heart. It's what I visualize. Every artist manual or 3d can copy or be inspired to other's work. It's a good thing internet help us be inspired but not to copy it. Tell me if you invented or innovated something that's not yet out of the market and I will stop defending this now. :) (Smile)

I get your point dude.. 
And I also get the entire "Holy Concept Theory", Im an Architecture student myself. 

My opinion was (beyond bashing the name - Sorry but if you name your kid "Asshole", everyone in school are gonna and call him "Hey Asshole". They wont see much beyond it) that its ok that concept leads Design, but it cannot stick in there for the entire process.  Surly not when presenting it to someone..  Good design is GOOD design. 
Some will buy the stories youve made up to justify the curtain window and some won't. Concept wont make design a good design.

And - This project is like drawing on a blank piece of paper, no real context or program to pay attention too. 
So, as a theoratical project, it really could go to some more experimental paths. if you beliave in the importance of Architecture & Design then you could really make a stance that shows your ideals. 
Random pillars show that you're a random person? common man, it can go deeper than this explaination. 

Im not even judging the design, I have no problem with it cause we as students can really come with every shit we like.. 
What bothers me (and it just happens that Ive put out my opinion about in your work) are the far fetched stories that students tend to give their works. 
Its shallow and usually boring to look at. 
I wanna make a remark about the Design though - About the "Open person = curtain walls".  It is located like 8 meters beyond the street line, behind a yellow drug dealers Ferrari or whatever, under a light roof..
Openess? No really buying me as a representation of openess.  

I wish us both luck in our studies anyway! 
Im sure we do well

About the curtain wall behind the ferrari. That's where the considerations kick in. Of course I want a curtain wall but I should also consider the safety and security of the users from outside while considering the shed for the car and most importantly setback is a law.

Yeah, there is no real context or program in the project that's why i'm relying on my philosophical designing. Well it depends on the eye of the beholder. I respect your opinions. We live in a world were critiques were crucial for improvements as long as we believe in our design.

Thank you for the explanations. Good luck also! :happybounce:

I think that what differs a designer to an engineer. The stories you make. The soul you have created to your design that what make it stands out. I'm not judging your opinion but architecture is art+science.

Art = stories of the designer
Science = to somehow construct it with building technologies

 That's why we have concepts. You're just blinded by the name I decided to give it to. 

Like I said, not every mountain side is in the middle of a fucking nowhere. I imagined it in a town. What to argue? It's not even a real site. It's imaginary created by my sibling to help me with this.

As you said, I should focus on the design but then you continue to criticize the land location.

Still, thank you for this. I created this page to let people criticize my works. :) (Smile)

The concepts are what makes you understand a design. "The curtain wall that show me as an open person". The story is necessary for you to decide what materials and methods you're going to use in your design. I could just use a standard casement or sliding windows with an offset of 90cm on the ground but "NO" Because that would not live up to my story that I'm an open person. Like I used awkward looking columns to show my randomness right? If its just function, the columns would not be necessary since it has no use. That's why it is a design. For aesthetically purposes that bound the ideas of the designer to a structure. Design Conceptualization is what they call it.

And the critiques on the name because it didn't live up to the design is not even an issue, my friend. One look at it and you'll know its a house not for a family... or not? haha my point is, I want everyone who see this that it's a "man's house" because of the erotic design even without the title. 

Be free to critique, but of course I'll defend it to my extent. :happybounce:
