Architect Designs Unique House Out Of Shipping Containers To Be Built On A Desert





There are a lot of innovations and new discoveries in the construction world today, and the modern architecture is never failing to surprise the world with its latest creations. The world was used to see structures made up of wood and concrete only, but the use of container vans to build living spaces is starting to become the new trend.

There are already hundreds of container van house designs posted online and they are certainly awe-inspiring. However, a new design of house made of shipping containers might soon become the new head turner once its construction gets done.

A container van home is going to be build based on this design and its interior is as awesome as its exterior.

A London-based designer named James Whitaker designed the awesome shipping container house shaped like a desert flower-like cascade that’s going viral online today. It is yet to be built, but people are already excited to see the end result as the 3D design makes the structure look like it’s pretty interesting to live in.

The design features a 200-square meter house, which includes complete house features a kitchen, a living room, and three en-suite bedrooms with beds facing the full-size glass wall. The house will be made from several conjoined shipping containers that will be set at various angles, creating the illusion of a huge flower blooming in the desert.

The modern shipping container house was designed by James for an unnamed film producer who has a passion for nurturing creative projects. James revealed some details of the project saying:

“Earlier this year my client in LA had some friends visiting and, having a little time to spare, they all went on a road trip to visit the client’s plot of land in Joshua Tree…One of the friends said, ‘you know what would look great here?’ before opening her laptop to show everyone a picture she’d seen on the internet. The picture was of an office that I’d designed several years ago but had never been built, so the next time the client was in London he got in touch and asked to meet up.”

James calls the house The Joshua Tree Residence. The house is yet to be built on his client’s 90-acre plot of land in California, and the start of construction is already set to begin next year. The residence will be solar powered from panels on the garage roof, which, at the same time, will offer occupants with stunning views across the surrounding landscape from the numerous windows installed and from the house’s large wooden deck.
