New architectural trend: containers


Have you ever noticed those (often ugly) huge and metallic structures stacked on top of each other at the harbour? The containers. They are used to store all the fishing stuff, clothes, cars… So well, now you can customize and use them as home.

Those architecture projects are looking for giving a completely new life to these shipping containers. Side by side or one on top of each other, new or recycled, this novel manner of constructing combines minimalism with industrial style. It’s all about a matter of taste.

For instance, architecture group Ziegler Build has designed an amazing mansion using 31 shipping containers: four bathrooms, four bedrooms, one gym, one art studio… Do you dare?
