Marcio Kogan creates and interesting experience through the use of painted shipping containers , but the trick is they are just the main part of his composition that uses shipping containers to play with color and texture.

Designed by James & Mau Arquitectura and Infiniski,  Casa El Tiamblo brings a new option to the table , using blue shipping containers , they create a metallic rough exterior that opens up the interior spaces towards the garden. Other than the standard shape of a container that gives the rooms a specific geometry , the interiors can fool anyone into thinking that containers are not part of the house design. This project showcases the fact that comfortable living conditions can be achieved using minimal and cheap structures such as shipping containers, with a clever and extravagant interior design much can be achieved in the way of atmosphere and feel.

#9 Shipping Container Home in Colorado by Studio H: T

Chipping Container Home Materialized in Colorado

Designed by  Studio H: T, the volume of this house is made by wedging together 2 shipping containers , but coupled with the context of the landscape it creates an unique solution , that shows how containers can be used to create high standard home. While the intersection of two simple geometrical figures may not sound like much ( since shipping containers are used) , what they manage to achieve with this in the interior is truly remarkable. Passive cooling technology, water recycling units and solar energyensure that the house is autonomous and independent, especially given its location in wild landscape of Colorado.

Innovative Starbucks Design in Washington Crafted from Shipping Containers

The Starbucks drive-thru in Tukwila, Washington has been created using 4 shipping containers , the same used by the company . The idea to use the shipping containers that are used by Starbucks belonged to Tony Gale , the company architect. The idea suits well the purpose , and conveys very well the feeling of mobility that a drive-thru should have. While not exactly a house or a home it proves the infinite possibilities of shipping containers , and how a high quality architecture can be achieved and at the same time a great conversion of older , long serving shipping containers is achieved.
