Medical Complex for Salam Center in Sudan


This Medical Complex Housing Quarters in Sudan is made out of discarded shipping containers that are laying around the city center of Soba, Sudan.  Tam architecture carefully converted those shipping containers into this amazing housing for international staff.  The containers are organized around the courtyard full of mango trees. It consists of 90 x 20ft containers for housing and  7 x 40 ft containers for the cafeteria. Every housing unit is 20sqm and it is constructed out of one and a half containers.

The containers are insulated with a ‘layer system’.  The interior wall of the containers are insulated with insulating panels.  The outer ‘skin’ is covered with a second insulated roof and a bamboo brise soleil panel system.   In this way the sun rays never hit the containers.
