As the issue of housing shortage continues to worsen in developed cities around the world, non-for-profit organizations and governments are looking at alternative solutions. Reportedly, YMCA in east London is looking to redesign shipping containers into temporary homes for struggling young adults. While occupants work their way for a better future, these temporary homes will serve as a stepping stone towards independence. The details of the design are going to make all the difference in ensuring these containers transform into dignified living spaces. These shipping container homes are to be equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, and plasterboard walls. They are to be built in multi-storey blocks, with balconies and external stairs to the upper levels.
