Linx & Keetwonen


Richard Barnwall is a recent graduate from the National College of Art and Design.

The project above was designed as his Final Year Project.
Linx is a 20' shipping container redesigned to be used as temporary shelter for workers on a construction site.

I love this project, I love that he is making good use from objects that are already manufactured. Wouldn't this be a great idea to modify for student housing, like Amsterdam's massive Keetwonen complex, which houses 1,000 students.


Designed by Tempo Housing in 2006, Keetwonen is said to be a roaring success, with units that are well insulated, surprisingly quiet and comfortable.
