Ever since shipping container homes became a thing architects, designers and even private home owners have made incredible progress in making this sort of projects more accessible, customizable and simpler overall. There’s this one shipping container house that stands out. It’s a home built by a Colorado firefighter for himself and his family, who collaborated with architect Joe Simmons from Bluesky Studio on the design.
The exterior of the house is a blend of modern, rustic and industrial elements. The wood-clad exterior walls give the house a very welcoming and cozy look. A set of clerestory windows bring in additional sunlight, helping to make the house feel airy and spacious. Sliding glass doors open up the ground floor and seamlessly connect it to the patio and the garden.
The cold and rugged nature of the metal container frames is balanced by lots of warm wood. The transition between all the different spaces is quite seamless in spite of obvious barriers. The living room has a soaring 25 foot high ceiling. The open kitchen includes a large island with lots of built-in storage, a hex marble tile backsplash and sleek black cabinets. The bedrooms have separate open balconies and sliding doors, the furniture and floors are of dark-colored wood that contrasts the white walls. Get more of this cool home below!
