10 incredible houses made from containers

In a spirit of environmental protection and sustainable development, more and more homes are built from containers, initially dedicated to the transport of goods. Here is our selection of the most beautiful residences around the world made in this unusual material.

A very geometric residence


Vincent Fillon This building, made up of several dwellings, was tailor-made in a very linear and cubic spirit. To build an apartment, two containers were needed. The stairwells are located outside to ventilate the overview and separate the different buildings. Source: divisare.com

An unusual restaurant

A family home in trompe l'oeil


Small houses woon It doesn't sound like that, but this building in the state of Oklahoma in the United States was well designed using five industrial containers. Robust and modern, it is very bright thanks to its large bay windows and blends into the landscape thanks to the bricks affixed to certain walls. Source: smallhouseswoon.com

Create an opening to the outside


Flag Staff This Arizona container home was made from six recycled shipping containers. These two floors provide a pleasant and warm setting to this incredible house. The terrace is very well thought out visually since it is made from wooden slats, in line with the lines of the walls. With a picture window or a French window, access to the terrace is simplified and the interior is immediately brighter. Source: containerhouseflagstaff.com

A little architectural gem

Playing on lines and shapes


Homedit Who said that the containers were reserved for industrial constructions? In this very designer family house, the walls were built with containers, which structures the space and creates a vertical pattern. Consider painting a section of wall in a pastel color, which will be less aggressive. Source: homedit.com
