Hello, my name is Santos Del Real, college student studying architectural. I am a 21 years old designer.



Living in a shipping container

Okay, it’s not so easy to control the moisture balance well when it rains, it makes a terrible noise when it is raining and when it is hot it is really bloody hot.

But, for a few thousand dollars you have a shipping container. And for another few thousand dollars you can live in it. If you want to do something more with the shipping container and have some more money you can make it a true palace.

Pretty Architecture presents: Glass houses S2E1

This open glass house doesn’t leave much to the imagination, but is sure to spark some creative thinking of your own! Netherlands architecture firm Hans van Heeswijk Architects designed this stunning glass wall house in Amsterdam, where the interior is always on display. (And if you value your privacy, this isn’t the place for you! But, it’s definitely worth a tour for the architecture lovers out there.) 

In fact, it’s the residence of Hans van Heeswijk, who wanted a spacious, light-filled place full of dramatic details to call “home.” Inside, this open concept home design welcomes you with a vast, open interior - an open-to-above living area punctuated with open staircases zigzagging their way up, and contemporary loft levels cutting across from one side to the other. 

At the center of the home, a “magic box” rises three storeys and is clad in wenge wood, housing storage closets, a bathroom every floor and a dumbwaiter. Topping off this contemporary design, a rooftop terrace overlooks the waterfront. Hans van Heeswijk Architects
