South African Copia Eco Cabins Use Re-Purposed Shipping Containers

The Copia Eco Cabin is an eco retreat located on a family farm in Botrivier, South Africa, not too far off from Capetown. The cabin features two re-purposed shipping containers covering about 60sqm and is completely off-grid running exclusively on solar power.

The interior of the cabin is open-plan with only three-quarter dividing walls between the living room and bedroom. It also features a sizable bathroom, but,  the main highlight of the cabin would be the wood-fired hot tub from where one can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Bot River valley as well as an outdoor barbecue for a traditional South African braai.
