Villa Kontena | Paving the market trend in Malaysia

Paving the market trend on container eco-friendly home.
A trend setter.

Settling with architecture experience doesn’t goes well with Port25; the company that showcased Villa Kontena at the recent Camping in the City event held a Lanai Matic, Jalan Ampang.

Hungry for challenge and craving for green building excellence, Port25 aimed to create a different in Malaysia tourism industry. Understanding the concern that hoteliers have, the pain that small time guesthouses encountered and coupled with the travellers need of a decent and affordable accommodation during ones journey, makes Port25 craft Villa Kontena. Villa Kontena is an affordable accommodation that focuses on necessity and carbon footprint while meeting demand-supply from both parties; hotel and guesthouse owners and guest. 

Villa Kontena is not a typical container home like what we see trending now in Malaysia, Villa Kontena is a realization and vision of Port25, where it minimizes the reconstruction of the shipping container while leveraging on existing space, at the same time, providing the guest with experience of staying in a eco-like hotel. Embarking in container hotel helped to recycled more than 3000kg worth of steel, not only that, it also contributes in saving the building materials such as mortar, bricks, wood and etc. Aside, it’s fast construction helped to save cost from both the contractor and the hotel/guesthouse owners.

For each recycled shipping container we are reusing around 3,500kg worth of steel. We are also saving all of the traditional building materials (such as bricks, mortar and wood) which don’t need to be used.

Whilst you could argue that melting down the shipping container and recasting the steel into something else is more environmentally friendly, you would be wrong. Recasting steel requires an incredible amount of energy and it isn’t financially viable- this is why there are so many abandoned shipping containers in the world.

Embarking in yet another great project in Perak, Port25 is set to pave their path in this wondrous state, starting with container  villa, equipped with base necessity and eco-friendly built ups, giving guest and travellers alike a pure sense of being and surrounded by nature, yet still feel comfortable and secured.

PORT25, being the acronym for People Of Remarkable Talent, is a design collaborative based in Malaysia. With the aim to forge broader inter-disciplinary creative collaborations, PORT commune was created by repurposing an old factory/warehouse into a space where like-minded creative types would gather and share discourses or exhibits.

Aside from building container home, Port25 also specialises in Architecture Design, Urban Design/Intervention, Interior Design, Furniture Design and Exhibition Installation.
