What's
Cocoon Modules?

Cocoon Modules is a prefabricated unit of living area constructed out of a used shipping container and transformed into quality living space for different uses such as housing, hosting or event spaces benefiting from energy efficiency, cost, construction time and design.

By up-cycling shipping containers Cocoon Modules introduces an affordable and eco-friendly living solution. Modularity ensures that over time you can grow your dwelling to your needs. This modular concept promotes environmental design, while allowing construction to respond to the currents needs of the modern day.

It’s earthquake resistant and has been designed and crafted by an experienced team of architects and engineers who have created an energy-efficient solution that is completely turnkey to the end user. Transforming ubiquitous corrugated boxes into sleek pop-up homes, shops, and shelters, Cocoon Modules is redefining what a container can be.

Why
container architecture?

The container has been a controversial object due to its properties, use and impact on trade, shipping and storage. Its appearance marked a new era in various sectors including automation and shipping, which had and still have great influence on the global economy, minimizing the distances and eliminating the high cost of shipping. Over the past 50 years it has become a symbol of connecting populations, countries and continents.

Sustainable

Cocoon Modules philosophy is based on environmental design and sustainability. Shipping containers are disposable items, or waste. This is due to the fact that most countries import goods on a much higher volume and frequency than they are able to export them. Relieving the trade industry of container waste by up-cycling shipping containers effectively repurposing them for building homes or any other architectural space, we are contributing to the preservation of the environment. Not only we recycle but also up-cycle the shipping containers adding an extra value and use them as a building blocks for modular expansion.

Reconnect with nature Our homes are designed to offer an indoor outdoor living experience wherever you choose to place your home.
Green roofs help to decrease stress of the people around the roof by providing a more aesthetically pleasing landscape, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and mitigate the heat island effect.

Energy efficient due to  high-performance insulation

A Cocoon Module is an innovative building solution that meets current architectural requirements. It is characterised by excellent thermal insulation, thus reducing the energy consumption of the building. The thermal properties of insulation blocks used for the walls, ceilings and floors minimise the use of heating and air conditioning.

Modular

One of the salient features of modular construction with containers is the changeability in relation to size, regarding both surface area and the building’s height. Modular construction allows for expansions, extensions and additional storeys, as well as partial or complete dismantling. This scalability is the basis of the almost limitless adaptability of modular construction. Its low net weight together with the container module’s sturdy shell allow several modules to be stacked on top of each other depending on the plans.

Transportable

The Container Modules can be transported by truck and the use of cranes to nearly anywhere in the world making it possible to move your dwelling across your properties like never before.

                      Upcycling Shipping Containers

                      Shipping containers can be regarded as waste objects that can be used as building components thus avoiding the use of steel from other processes or the extraction of virgin materials during the product stage. Empty containers are accumulated worldwide as a result of the linear nature of the trading system. With an upcycling process, the “stored” steel contained within abandoned freight containers is introduced into the circular economy of the building sector. This upcycling process provides for each new house a general global warming potential reduction.

                      Cocoon Modules is upcycling shipping Containers effectively transforming them into luxurious houses that otherwise would require newly produced raw materials to build. In an ever consuming society Cocoon Modules is proud to reintroduce these raw steal materials in the economy leading the way to more sustainable and efficient urban planning.
