PopUp Dorms

The Pop-Up dorms made from wooden shipping containers sit in a temporary setting of a future construction project. The shipping containers - prefabricated - were put together to form student housing in the Seestadt area of Vienna. An atrium acts as communal zone, furniture is made from recycled materials and there is a Chill-Out Zone: Temporary housing is affordable, attractive and hip!

OHW - Experience

Starting in the foyer, the tour continues directly towards one of the compact residential units. Welcome to a container house: thought-provoking questions about building and living in containers.
