Shipping Containers Conversion ideas / Joshua Tree Residence by Whitaker Studio

Situated in California desert, the Joshua Tree Residence is a 195 sqm, three-bedroom home made of white shipping containers bursting out from a central point.

Architects: Whitake Studio
Location: California, USA

The complex will be powered by solar panels that will form the canopy of the parking area and will include a wooden deck designed to blend with the surrounding rocky terrain.

For the interiors, the containers were put at an angle that allows for interesting views from the central section of the house.

Inspiration from the designer:

Their idea was just to stack the containers on top of one another, like in a port. I thought it didn’t really go together with a dynamic advertising agency, so that set me off thinking about utilizing the containers in a more intriguing way.
