Recycled Shipping Containers to Combat UK’s Homelessness Problem

•, By Philippa Warr
Unused shipping containers from Amsterdam are to be recycled to create housing for homeless people in the English cities Brighton and Hove.
 The 36 containers were initially intended for a similar use in Amsterdam — as studio apartments to deal with the city’s housing crisis — but have been relocated to Brighton after the Amsterdam project remained unfinanced.
The use of the containers as temporary housing still needs to be approved by Brighton and Hove City Council before the Brighton Housing Trust and the project’s developers, QED, can move into action, but if successful would pave the way for similar projects elsewhere in the UK.

Architects and developers seeking to alleviate overcrowding and homelessness in cities are increasingly turning to flexible temporary options.
