Container House

Modern Urban Living in a 2x20ft Shipping Container Home

These two 20ft high cube shipping containers have been transformed into an incredible modern urban home. Situated on a steep section with breathtaking views overlooking the city, this home is truly impressive.

One container contains the bedroom, bathroom and an impressive walk-in-style wardrobe, while the other houses the kitchen and living room. The two containers are joined by an undercover area that shelters a large outdoor lounge and dining space.

The home has an undeniable industrial look thanks to the containers which have been largely left unaltered from their days at sea. The exterior celebrates their history, with the painted shipping numbers still exposed, yet stepping inside, the interior quickly feels like a true home, softened with modern, cosy design. Germaine perfectly describes her shipping container home's style as being soft-industrial.

It never ceases to amaze me how shipping containers in all their industrial glory can be transformed into such welcoming and comfortable homes. We hope you enjoy the full tour of this brilliant shipping container home.
