Container House


Our client, a fashion designer, came to us with her design for a family home built by stacking two shipping containers on top of a concrete block garage. We spent considerable time making these plans work, whilst still retaining the general layout she requested.

We also spent plenty of time researching container house construction, and have developed some real in-house expertise.
