Shipping containers can serve many needs when they’re repurposed in a whole new way. For example, you can create gardens and grow fresh fruits and vegetables in urban areas. They also have been repurposed as full-fledged tiny homes, spare studio spaces, and most recently, a ski resort. That’s right: A ski resort in Eastern Europe is literally made of shipping containers.
The Quadrum Ski and Yoga Resort in Gudauri, Georgia, offers two reasons why it’s good for the environment. Not only is it mostly made out of repurposed shipping containers, cutting out the need for new materials and waste, but it’s in an area that impacts the least amount of space. How so? The ski resort is built as a five-level pyramid structure and it descends down the side of a mountain.
Each of the rooms include beautiful wood paneling and panoramic windows. Options include a single room, double room, family suite for five people, or a deluxe suite.
Breakfast is included and there’s an additional lobby bar to relax in. With free Wi-Fi available, people can enjoy their favorite activities when taking a break in their rooms.
Living in a shipping container has been catching on. In fact, people can simply order a “tiny home” that’s made from a new shipping container directly off of Amazon. They can easily be customized to fit your needs and they have options for renewable energy. It runs close to $40,000 including shipping, which isn’t bad for an interor of 320 square feet.
