How To Build a Portable Classrooms With Container House?

- Dec 18, 2019-

From the perspective of the building structure, the simple container is not enough to directly serve as a classroom, so the designers of K-home have modularized the container house, enriching the functions and adding the characteristics of sustainable development.

In order to allow children in poor areas to have a good education, the K-home design department has proposed a very low-cost modular container school. We believe this measure will solve the problem of insufficient educational facilities because our The mission is to protect the world's people from the wind and rain. The design mainly includes educational facilities such as classrooms, offices, playgrounds, and libraries. Among them, the container classroom is the most demanded and the most important link. The container classroom is made up of two standard shipping containers, of which modular components include frame steel, glass panels, solar energy saving systems, drains, filter ducts, cisterns, windows and furniture. These modular components only need to be transported to the site for installation with the container, saving a lot of time.


First, select two standard containers;

Step 2: Put the module materials for assembly into the container and prepare for transportation;

Step 3: Assemble the basic building frame;

Step 4: Install walls, floors, photovoltaic panels, etc .;

Step 5: Complete the assembly of a single classroom and add furniture;

Finally: Plan campus size based on actual needs.

Economic benefits are just the most basic advantages of this project. Advanced solar energy storage systems, scientific recycled water utilization and scalability are the biggest advantages of this project. The solar panels on the roof can maintain the use of all the equipment in a classroom under normal sunlight, which can fully meet the power consumption required for a day of teaching. The custom-made rainwater collector can be filtered directly through the pipeline and the sedimentation tank is updated to produce direct drinking water, avoiding waste of water resources.


This project is a very flexible modular expansion system. Its combination depends on actual needs. The classroom consisting of two containers can accommodate 24 students at the same time. Three containers can form a small playground. Six containers can form a large library.
