This house was constructed and designed by Studio H:T and resides in Nederland, Colorado, USA. Its floor area is approx 1,517 square feet and to be honest the design they put together did get me first wondering if it was just a modular house until I seen the construction photos. The paneled walls make the home look rather unique but also to the point that its use of mixed colours contrasting with the environment actually make it blend in with them even more. Add to that the home is set in a V shape the sitting room opens up the wild open spaces and fantastic views. One of the most unique and interesting designs for a shipping container house I have seen so far and probably one of the best.
Shipping containers are often seen as “not” the way to go in housing development but City Centre Lofts have seen the potential to move into not only single dwellings but for city living and I can’t blame them. The truth of the matter is they have done their homework on the cost of structures comparing other materials and can see a 25% saving on the building method using shipping containers for condo development. As well as keeping to its green values they are looking at 50% use of recycled materials as well as other green enhancements to the properties.
City dwellings are always restricted to cost which translates into land use having stackable shipping containers converted into condo homes offers up a real solution to city dwelling especially as the world population continues to increase.
