Recycle. Reuse. We often see wooden pallets converted into a sofa or a bed, fruit crates into shelves, old magazines into a stool…but what about converting a shipping container into a real house? If you think that the idea of building a house out of a shipping container is crazy, have a look at these amazing houses…yes, they ALL were shipping containers, once.
Riciclare. Riutilizzare. Spesso vediamo pallet trasformati in diveni o letti, cassette di frutta in scaffali/mensole, vecchie riviste in pouf poggiapiedi, ma avete mai pensato di trasformare un container in una vera casa? Se l’idea vi sembra folle, date un’occhiata a queste magnifiche abitazioni…sì, una volta erano TUTTE dei container. House in the house. Designed by New Jersely architect Adam Kalkin this house features smaller individual components that look like a traditional house. Brilliant!It also reminds of a dolls house…View of the outside. Just beautiful. Definitely my favourite!
Although the outside is not that beautiful (very raw) the interiors are simply stunning, in my opinion. Modern, stylish and cosy. The kitchen and living area are just beautiful.
Even in this case, I don’t really like the outside but the interiors are gorgeous!!! I specially love the aqua walls, of course, and the bohemian style bedroom. And it also has a garden on the rooftop! Project by Homecontained
BOXPARK Shoreditch is a pop-up Mall based in the heart of East London.
“BOXPARK is constructed of stripped, and refitted shipping containers, creating unique, low cost, low risk pop-up stores. Filled with a mix of fashion and lifestyle brands, galleries, cafés and resaurants – BOXPARK places local and global brands side-by-side, creating a unique shopping and dining destination. BOXPARK is not some run-of-the-mall shopping centre. It’s a living, fertile community of brands packed with talent, innovation and attitude that puts creativity and fashion back where they belong: on the street.”
I really love the idea!
Opened in 2011 by Roger Wade, who has this ingenious idea: small brands find almost impossible renting a big space in a fancy shopping center and therefore reaching to the general public with their products. With BOXPARK almost any entrepreneur can afford to rent one of the commercial spaces. Brilliant!
