c900 Bunkhouse

"It's the best design Cargotecture has ever done. With code setbacks, it houses 264 people per acre or (22) c900 Bunkhouses."

There is no less expensive way to house a large number of people than the c900 Bunkhouse. The design inspiration is “luxury cruise ship bunkhouse” in a transformation of inexpensive lightly stained plywood.

The c900 Bunkhouse design would qualify as a:

Homes for Homeless

The whole building design was originally about healing the homeless from trauma and offering them job recovery services and privacy. Job training and trauma counseling can happen with laptops and earbuds in one’s private bunk, on the flip-down laptop cabinet desk, with the blackout curtains drawn. A humane home for 12, it is perfect for housing agencies and more!

Oil Workers

As a bunkhouse for oil services workers, I believe that this will reduce worker turnover based on better privacy concerns. The workers and managers can have private conversations on the laptop/earbuds with their family, in their bunks. There are 3-ring binder shelves for each bunk, lockers that hold hardhats and two pairs of boots, and coathooks.

Yoga Retreat

As a bunkhouse for a yoga or nature retreat, this space would photograph well as a place where each individual can escape for private time in their bedroom, complete with their own operable window with blackout curtain. This comes off as luxury, private space, and can be clad easily with hardiboard.
It is also used for migrant farmworker housing, summer camp cabin, fish and hunting camp, road services crew housing for Alaska and other places, housing on a barge, retreats in far off places, and disaster relief housing.
