Project Description


Norisol has developed a concept of converting shipping containers into student homes for CPH Village.

We have built almost 200 homes at the Refshaleøen in Copenhagen.

The containers were given an anti-corrosion treatment, painted, insulated and furnished with windows, doors, internal walls, kitchens and bathrooms.

The container homes are highly flexible, economical and sustainable, and have the advantage of a very short time horizon. The homes can function for a minimum of 40 years and can be moved up to 5 times and placed exactly where there is shortage of housing.

More homes can be added next to or on top of existing homes as needed. The modules comply with the Danish building regulations’ demands for safety, noise and acoustics and energy consumption.

Our competences within energy optimisation, facade cladding and fitting out all come together when it comes to building of container homes.
