compared to other container designs, the ‘HiLoft’ offers an entirely new independent room that is easy to adapt to any use or any season. the project takes part of a modern urban architecture concept which is based on an ordinary shipping container. it is a compact high quality room, fully independent from any specific location allowing for a lot of interesting possibilities of usage. in times of growing cities, it can also give a running-out-of-space area an efficient solution. with a focus on sustainability, the ‘HiLoft’ is made from a selection of environmentally friendly materials and designed for a long lifetime.

although the ‘HiLoft’ has a rather small floor area, it provides a very high comfort level. this is generated by accurately designed details, well conceived materials and innovative equipment. for general well-being, all the walls and ceilings are made of natural real wood, achieving a serene atmosphere. the full-surface floor radiates a pleasant heat from below, without air turbulence, dust or dry heating art. a decentralized ventilation with heat recovery supplies the premises with fresh air without loosing energy, and an air condition system has been integrated into the interior design.
