Architect Builds House Out Of Shipping Containers, And The Interior Is As Cool As The Exterior

A house out in the desert made of plastic doesn’t sound like the ideal place to be, but once you get a load of this shipping container home,  you’ll think again.

The house was designed by London-based designer James Whitaker and is set for construction next year. He included all of your standard amenities including a living room, en-suites, a kitchen, and bathrooms.

The ultra-modern yet minimalist design conjoins large shipping containers combined to create interesting angles to give the illusion of a flower blooming in the desert. An unnamed film producer requested the house be made for “nurturing creative projects” — and he got what he asked for.

“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,” said James. One of the friends came up with the idea for the home after seeing a picture of an office she’d designed several years back but never built.

That “aha” moment spawned The Joshua Residence which will reside on 90 acres in California.
