Take in the South African Countryside in This Shipping Container Eco-Cabin

of light into the cabin, and most notably, uninterrupted views from every angle, “he states.”I enjoyed the concept of taking a big harsh steel structure and transforming

it into something practical and stunning.”Steyn discusses that up until just recently, delivering container architecture in South Africa was generally used

for offices or low expense real estate, and he was interested in how they might be utilized for upscale lodging. The interior of the cabin is open-plan with just three-quarter dividing walls in between the living space and

bed room. The highlights of the cabin consist of a wood-fired hot tub and outside barbecue for a standard South African braai. Copia is totally off-the-grid and works on solar energy. Steyn left the outside bare so the container would maintain some of its initial identity.”I selected not to clad the outside and left all the dents in the container

as is, due to the fact that when you are inside the cabin you have no concept that you are inside a old shipping container,”he discusses. Steyn is currently constructing a 2nd container cabin, Lone Pine, which will be open to guests in December. Nightly rates for Copia Cabin begin at R1250 (approximately $92)a night, while rates for Lone Pine Cabin begin at R1550(roughly $114).
