*바다위 컨테이너 하우스 [ BIG ] floating student housing

the urban rigger is a floating, carbon neutral property made from upcycled shipping containers. designed by bjarke ingels, the scheme provides affordable and sustainable homes for young academics studying in copenhagen, denmark. measuring a total of 680 square meters, each structure comprises 15 living spaces articulated around a common green courtyard. other amenities include a kayak landing, a bathing platform, a barbecue area, and a communal roof terrace. downstairs, below sea level, the pontoon basement features 12 storage zones, a technical room, and a fully automated laundry.

BIG’s design of urban rigger seeks to offer a solution to the growing demand for affordable student housing in both copenhagen, and further afield. ‘recent years have demonstrated a substantial and sustained increase in the number of student applicants throughout denmark,’ says the design team. ‘as the number of students continues to grow, additional student housing will be needed to accommodate them.’


onsequently, the architects used copenhagen’s underutilized, yet centrally positioned harbor as a stage to present a building typology optimized for water-adjacent cities. the standard dimensions of a shipping container ensure that urban rigger units can be transported by road, water, or air to anywhere in the world at a very low cost. in addition to utilizing upcycled shipping containers, the design employs a wealth of environmentally sustainable solutions — including hydro source heating, solar power, and low energy pumps.

by stacking nine container units in a circle, we can create 15 studio residences which frame a centralized winter garden; this is used as a common meeting place for students,’ explains BIG. ‘the housing is also buoyant, like a boat, so that can be replicated in other harbor cities where affordable housing is needed, but space is limited.’
