A housing complex for students have been designed by the french architectural firm Olgga Architects. The designed hostel will be built on 100 recycled shipping containers. And they named it “CROU”. This is called green technology. What a thought!!! It’s really amazing.

Shipping container structures are seen gaining a lot of popularity in current times. Not only are they beautiful and stylish, but also portable, affordable, durable and eco-friendly. This time I introduce you to a student housing complex built from recycled shipping containers.

'crou' student housing made from 100 recycled shipping containers

Olgga architects, a French firm shaped 100 shipping containers into a sturdy, economical and sustainable student housing in Le Havre, France. Each of these containers will function as an individual room for a student while maximizing space limitations. Dubbed the ‘Crou’, the 2,851m2 structure intends to make use of recycled containers, stacked in a somewhat pyramidal arrangement.

From what it appears in the images, one side of the container will function as the entrance, and will have connecting stairs and platforms to reach the entrance.

There is an environmental benefit associated with it which is it puts surplus containers to use instead of letting them slowly rust in a landfill.

The project is named Crou, and will be spread over an area of 30,700 square feet on the school campus. It is an interesting design, and appears to be a well designed project. What would be interesting to see is how the architects deal with the problem of noise that would be inherent to this all metal structure. But there should be a way to take care of that in the 4.45 million euro budget this has.
