2-storey Container House Designed for a Family of 4

It is now possible to see examples of houses made with recycled shipping containers almost all over the world.

Container houses are a very popular construction model recently due to the many advantages and unique looks they offer.

This design I want to show you was designed by an architect from Cambodia.

A total of 6 shipping containers, 2 x 40′ and 4 x 20′, were used in this container house, which was planned as a family house for 4 people. There is a matte black paint on the exterior that looks very stylish. In line with the customer’s request, dark colors were preferred both indoors and outdoors.

The u-shaped design of this container house made of 6 shipping containers made the house look quite magnificent. A sloping roof was built on top of the two-story container house to protect it from the weather.
