Shipping container homes are a genius way to repurpose something we’d otherwise throw away. You wouldn’t think that something like an old shipping container would be able to be used to create something so magnificiently beautiful…but it really is possible. These photos are proof and the the most amazing ones I’ve come across.
1. This home in Savannah, Georgia was created by Price Street Projects. This 800 sq ft home features one bedroom, one bath, and a long open kitchen flooded with loads of daylight. It’s sleek, modern, and bright… but what’s really interesting about it is that it’s made entirely from shipping containers!
Hard to believe that a home this gorgeous was made from something so simple.
In addition to being really neat looking, homes like this one are a great way of recycling discarded containers that would no longer have a use.
2. This modern home in Redondo Beach is made of shipping containers, too. It sits quietly along the Los Angeles coast. Inside, you’ll find four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and even a spacious living room equipped with fireplace.
It looks more like a traditional mansion than anything else, but it’s way more creative than that.
One of the walls even lifts up so that you can enjoy the great outdoors.
3. This cozy cabin is located in Quebec, Canada. It took architect Bernard Morin 7 recycled shipping containers to piece together this asymmetrical wonder. Inside you’ll find a generous 3,000 sq ft, featuring 4 comfortable bedrooms.
4. This house in El Tiemblo, Spain was made from four containers. It’s so colorful and spacious.
Designed by studio James & Mau Arquitectura and built by Infiniski, the 2,045-square-foot house took approximately six months to construct and a budget of 140,000 euros.
5. This home in the Mojave Desert is simply gorgeous. The containers give the ceilings a uniquely industrial feeling. It was created using two containers and only cost $40,000.
It’s located in San Jose, Costa Rica.
I can’t get over that serene view!
7. This Flagstaff, Arizona home was made from six containers. There are concrete floors and walnut wood accents.
It’s unbelievable how cozy and warm this home feels!
You would never expect such modern fixtures inside an oversized corrugated box.
The roof deck is probably the best feature of all! Who knew so much was possible using such simple materials?
The best part is, these exteriors are 100% recycled, making this trend a huge step towards more environmental architecture.
These homes are a perfect example of how creativity can turn something mundane into something brilliant. Share this, and inspire others to think differently about what makes a beautiful home.
