Alterra Pinamar – The Beach Resort Built With Shipping Containers, Argentina.

Argentine architect Clorindo Testa is responsible for the design of Alterra Pinamar an impressive 32,000 square feet resort built with shipping containers located at the upscale beach area of Pinamar, approximately 350 kilometers south-east from Buenos Aires. 


Apparently called “Glamping”  (glamorous camping?) these refurbished shipping containers are set amongst well established pine trees located near the beach, and cost around US$250 per night to stay in.

We particularly like the simple L Shaped design of the Alterra Pinamar shipping container modules as they very effectively utilise space, and we like the great use of timber decking that is very much integral to the design.
