Alterra Pinamar Container Hostel
A selection of shipping containers located in Pinamar, a beach resort situated approximately 350km south-east of Buenos Aires, have been transformed into an innovative hostel, which celebrates nature and the environment. The shipping container cabins feature heating and cooling systems, a kitchenette, a bathroom, and a private balcony.
This is the most recent example of designers embracing unusual spaces and primal concepts based on a general reconnection with nature. Others include Fearon Hay's Mountain Retreat in New Zealand, the Grotto Pavilion in Tilburg, Holland, and La Trufa resort in Galicia, Spain – all of which were highlighted in Primal Designs.
