Living in a Container

A talented architect by the name of Benjamin Garcia created a stylish yet economical home made out of shipping containers!!!  This gorgeous pad resides in San Jose, Costa Rica and has a raised center which gives out natural day light. It also has a wind tower effect that encourages natural ventilation, which works so well that they never have to turn on their AC. The awe-inspiring thing about this design is the fact that it only cost $40,000 and its a great way to utilize waste .  I definitely wouldn’t mind living in this container.
