The “high cube” containers are placed in parallel separated one-container distance, and over these spaces between them, the standard containers are placed. The floors of these ones are cut out and placed down at the level of the high cube ones. On the west and east side of the upper containers, windows allow the winds to clear the heat, that comes up by air stratification. The exterior white painting reflects up to 90 per cent of the solar radiation and its special composition with ceramic microspheres avoids its excessive warming.
