PVCConstruct is a cultural project without any commercial interest. It was born to illustrate the many ways in which Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) can enhance our daily lives.
The Bayside Marina Hotel, by Japanese architectural firm Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects, is another stunning example of modular construction built using shipping containers.
In order to avoid having all of the hotel’s windows facing the same direction, onto a public park, Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects separated the units and aligned each one differently. By separating the blocks, they had the necessary space to create thicker walls, covered with PVC panels and a high level of sound insulation for each flat through specific PVC false ceilings.
The use of non-welded joints in construction allows the re-use of the units in the future. The result is a natural balance between the arrangement of the blocks and the ocean view of yachts moored in the adjacent marina.
