Hinton Employee Housing

Hinton Employee Housing

What was initially designed as a one-storey employee housing project soon turned into a 4,786 ft2 two-storey building when the Owner realized the value and benefits of utilizing repurposed shipping containers (seacans) for the shell of the building. Working closely with the Owner and Design-Builder, VOSH was asked to develop the second storey addition to incorporate the conceptual design for the main floor. The entire building includes one-bedroom studios, two living room areas, a fitness room, two kitchens and a laundry facility for employees.

Nestled at the edge of Jasper National Park, just 20 kms west of Hinton, the new 34-unit employee housing project is designed to provide on-site accommodations for the Owner’s staff. Built entirely out of repurposed shipping containers, this project incorporates a number of sustainable design solutions that optimizes long-term cost savings with respect to the operation and maintenance of the building, as well as enhance the overall comfort of employees who have chosen to reside on site.
