Modern Shipping Container Guest House by Poteet Architects
There are many designs of shipping containers. Shipping containers have flexibility design. It can be standard size and many other useful designs. They can be open top containers allowing for shipping items likes rocks. They can also be flat racks which have the plus of being stacked when not in use. There is even a model with an extended top that allows for taller goods to be loaded inside. With so many benefits, your purchase of such a container will be well worth it.
The progress for converting shipping containers into domiciles continues with this strangely attractive Texas playhouse, guesthouse and garden retreat in San Antonio by Jim Poteet of Poteet Architects, LP. Shipping containers are a readily available resource thanks to their abandonment at seaports. It’s often cheaper for companies to simply buy a new container than ship an empty one home, so thousands languish in sprawling container storage facilities around harbors throughout the world.
Texas architect Jim Poteet designed this structure for artist Stacey Hill as part of her garden ensemble at her artists’ community home.
Stacey picked this particular container because of its color, which she kept as is. Jim added a large set of sliding doors, windows, a heating and AC system, and bathroom facilities including a composting toilet. An attached patio forms a pleasant area to sit in nice weather, and a cantilevered overhang provides shade to the window of a garden equipment storage room at one end of the container, which retains its original access doors.
