From the Architects:

Concrete- characterised by or belonging to quick knowledge of actual items or occasions sound, genuine, tangible.

Anamnesis- a recalling to thoughts reminisce. Shipping container housing, utilised numerous times in locations all around the globe, is now recognised as an architectural typology in its own right. Using structurally sound containers, stacked and cantilevered on best of each and every other, container housing speaks of an architectural form that expresses in itself the useful and practical nature of internationally standardised shipping containers.

While the use of structurally sound containers for housing allows the sustainable reuse of containers nearing the end of their lives, it does not deal with the problem of the estimated thirty,000 damaged containers currently in the oceans, or the extra 2,000-10,000 containers which fall off ships yearly. These containers require on regular 8,000 kWh to melt down, much more than an average house utilizes in one 12 months.
Our idea proposal, Concrete Anamesis, builds upon, yet is vastly diverse to suggestions linked with container housing. Starting up with broken containers, no longer ideal for use in shipping and destined for the scrap yard, the Bondi getaway house offers function to these containers, using their damaged panels as formwork for the residence.

The broken containers are organised on website according to the programmatic short of the property and in purchase to ideal capture views, natural breezes and daylight. The intersection of these containers produces void spaces which, when cast in concrete, turn out to be strong kinds.
This solidification of what was when void room turns what would usually be inert voids into area defining solids that defines rooms and places of the house and imparts a captivating spatial top quality to the residence, speaking not only of the arrangement of the damaged containers but also of their memory.

The idea of memory centres on the notion that memory requires area in space it is connected to each a temporal sense and a spatial encounter. The cast form of the containers displays the spatial knowledge, while at the very same time individuals quite deformations that shape the physical form also hold everlasting an event in time, reflecting the temporal sense. It is these imprints, these recollections, which inspire contemplation by the occupants of the containers rough lives at sea.
Concrete Anamnesis uses a sustainable concrete sprayed onto the deformed container formwork. Consisting of highly insulative Liapor high high quality expanded clay as aggregate and using new engineering that replaces cement with crushed waste glass, the cement has an estimated embodied C02 of significantly less than 30kg/tonne. This concrete mixture results in minimal embodied vitality creating material, ideal to the exposed and harsh circumstances of the site upon the headland.

Concrete Anamnesis results in a holiday residence that captures both the embodied recollections and the attractiveness in the fragility of the deformed container, while delivering a use for disused and structurally unsound containers within the harsh costal headland surroundings.
