the bayside marian hotel by japanese firm yasutaka yoshimura architects is based on the form 
of the shipping container. located on the seaside of yokohama, the prefabricated
modular cottages are randomly placed on the site, allowing for each residence to have different views.
the long narrow containers have been fabricated in thailand and assembled in japan.
each unit is made up of two containers which are stacked upon one another.

the space between guest units provides natural sound attenuation and visual privacy

concrete pathways lead to each cottage entrance
