Transformation of an Existing Shipping Container

Location: New Zealand (Various Locations) – Architect: Port-A-Bach- 34 square meters


The relationship between interior and exterior space is unlike most container houses that I have seen. The inside is very light and spacious. With the push of a button, the container can be easily transformed, allowing people to access and exterior deck and a lofted sleeping area. The home is easily transported as it sits on 6 concrete footings and can easily be relocated.

As you can see, the inside and outside blur together which makes this small space seem so much larger. This cozy (sometimes open air home) easily transforms to new activities and weather.
