Containerwerk & Rausch Schokoladen at Costa Rica

The Rausch Chocolate Company has established an institute in Costa Rica as they wish to bring back and re-establish fine old cocoa varieties that over time have become lost due to mass cultivation. At this site – far from civilisation in the heart of the jungle – they need a basecamp. Together, we came up with the idea to build a completely self-sufficient station out of containers featuring sleeping facilities, a small lab and a small office. There is, after all, no water and no electricity there. Planning has now been completed and in the next few months production work will begin. It will have its own water purification system and a solar unit for producing electricity that can be stored using silicon batteries. We will ultimately be delivering a stand-alone solution that can be deployed anyway in the world.
