aristide antonas: keg apartments

while transforming shipping containers into livable structures is now common, aristide antonas imagines
doing the same with liquid containers. antonas and collaborator katerina koutsogianni use existing
transportation and re-imagine this would-be trash as a system of ‘abandoned spaces’. the keg apartments
are proposed as an architectural program in two versions. the trailers can be detached from the car and
used as a stable residence or left attached and used more like mobile home. windows would be carved out
of the metal structures and used as points of entry. a large circular window cold be made at the front end
facing the car. this way, the inhabitants could move freely between the two units as if they were one.
the interiors are left very raw using the existing structure to anchor lofts and amenities like a bathtub.
while the keg containers don’t have the most spacious interiors, they could be put to use as vacation
homes, much like recreation vehicles today.
