This great shipping container home was designed by Port-A-Bach architects. My favourite aspect of this home is how it manages to meld the exterior and interior so well – at the push of a button the container begins to tranform, revealing an exterior deck and a lofted sleeping are, which can be left exposed to the elements when the weathers good.
When you leave for work and want to lock your doors, you simply push the button again and the home is protected by it’s steel shell. One side of the container is populated predominately with floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing the interior with natural light on the cloudiest of days. The other side of the container is dedicated to the kitchen and storage space. There is also a bathroom with an open shower, sink and composting toilet.
The architects website states that the home has bunk beds, a double bed room, and a dressing room. And by incorporating a fabric screen system you can create large open living spaces.
When it comes to mobility the contain rests on 6 concrete footings, allowing the home to be sited at a variety of different ground conditions.
The homes mobility, flexibility, durability and sustainability (and anything else that ends in ‘ity’) make this container home a real winner, not to mention its interesting interior exterior design.
