These are 18 bitmap format design studies for house/sculptures configured from 20' and 40' commercial shipping containers. The interiors range in square feet from just under 160 sf for the single twenty footer to just under 2,080 sf for the quadruple unit fashioned from six twenty footers and seven forty footers. Each design may be increased two fold in size by the double-widing (coupling identical units could provide unlimited depth in design) of the design. The door/window features are two panel sliding glass door sections approx. 4' x 8' per panel. Access to the upper floors is via spiral steel stair cases with the option of internal or external installation. They are offered as on/off grid shelters.

  • I've anounced this posting at fabprefab in their chat department under the container bay section.
    This site seems to be a side project for the magazine dwell. They have paid a lot of attention to
    modular housing and shipping container housing in their pages and have two books out on pre fab
