If we’re talking about container shaped house your mind must be directly pointed at a house that made from container as you seen on cargo ship. Yes that has been a trend these years but that’s not what we are going to talking about. The container here means a house with block shape but not always made from an unused cargo container. This shape has been quite popular these years due to the popularity of minimalist and modern design. The fine lines of the structure make it a perfect match to modern and futuristic design.
This kind of house structure is well known to be used in limited space especially if you have a road side location with limited extension to the backside. Having a house with this kind of structure might be stressing because you will have to design the landmark horizontally. In the other side you only have limited variations for the home interior and exterior designs due to the structure of the house itself. If you experience the same problem here are some tips in designing container shaped house.
If you want to stick with the container shape for your house but you don’t want to make it looks way too stiff you can try to combine two containers shaped building and arrange it like ’L’ letter.
