Student Dormitory built using shipping containers Cittani Architects

Living in student dormitory is like living in cramped box. And to make this true, Cittani Architects from France have designed a new student dormitory called Cite A Docks using old shipping containers. But wait the similarity ends here. This four story building contains 100 dormitory rooms, each measuring 24 square meter and includes bathroom and kitchen for each room. The exterior of the building looks like grey shipping containers stacked on each other with glass doors and windows. Each dormitory is really spacious when compared to other dormitories. This building is located in Le Havre, France. Take a look.
