ISBU Hotels… Imagine that? :)

19 Nov

People following our Facebook pages know that we’re working around the clock helping provide aid and comfort in the Philippines after Super Typhoon Haiyan.

So while we’re working, we thought that we’d share some really cool ISBU (Shipping Container) buildings with you.

This unique shipping container apartment building was built by a celebrity chef/entrepreneur named Alejandra Dellepiane. Alejandra decided that Jose Ignacio, Uruguay needed a hotel. And Alejandra used ISBUs to build it.  Why did Alejandra do it? Well, because it had never been done in Uruguay before!

Aside from the wooden decks, flower gardens, firepit, jacuzzi and grill, it’s all ISBU.  This beachside hotel is surrounded by a forest of pine trees. The location seems almost ideal!

And, best of all, they incorporated Solar Hot Water and LED lighting, to make the building more efficient.
