Urban Rigger: Shipping containers become floating dorms for Danish students – TomoNews


COPENHAGEN, DENMARK — A Copenhagen start-up created an innovative student dormitory that floats on water.

The floating student dormitory is called the Urban Rigger. The structure is made of 9 containers stacked in two levels on a concrete pontoon which can create 12 rooms. Each room is a studio setting with bedroom and living room areas.

The structure has an open-air courtyard in the middle and storage zones and a laundry room in the basement. It uses sustainable technologies such as solar panels and hydro source heating to provide energies.

The rent for one room will be roughly about $600 per month, which is a bargain in Copenhagen. Urban Rigger has already received over 3,000 applications from students who are interested in living on water.
