Nomad Living: Shipping Container Project
An affordable shelter for modern nomads
Do you pay an exorbitant price for a dwelling that serves only for sleep? If so, you might be a modern nomad. Fortunately, Studio ARTE gets it. With their NOMAD Living project in Algarve, Portugal, the design ensemble explores the boundaries and flexibility of the modern wayfaring lifestyle. Born out of a disused shipping container, the project is a cheap and obtainable shelter that we could easily picture in a variety of locations, serving a variety of different purposes: office space, home or quiet, personal retreat. Indeed, adaptability and accessibility are precisely the objectives of Studio ARTE’s initiative, offering a flexible solution to our increasingly cordless lifestyle. So, we find ourselves asking, where can we get one?
