This house made with a shipping container might not be very attractive from the outside, however when they appreciate its interior many change their mind. Design and functionality meet an artistic style with this project that proposes recycling.

An artist decided to build a house using two old containers that he was able to recycle and decorate with recycled furniture and lots of imagination.

a container turned into a house

If you thought that this waste could not be used, just look at the cunning of the designer, the artist and designer Julio García when designing this space in Savannah, Georgia, to understand that everything can be reused with functionality and beauty.

This artist took two 40-foot containers and installed them separately with a shed roof and clerestory windows that fill this modest space with plenty of daylight. The wood and furniture inside make the one-room house a perfect refuge for an artist.

Knowing how to convert recycling is a design is undoubtedly a great feat, especially taking advantage of the space and devising a house that can be adjusted to our own needs, it gives us the opportunity to be more independent and to be able to adapt the furniture and spaces to our own design.

The interior of this house built inside a large container is amazing, it looks like an exhibition hall and with a minimalist style conceived by the artist Julio García.

The “patio” of the house has a very attractive design, knowing how to take advantage of the spaces that were generated with the union of the two containers and decorating with vegetables and a covered gallery.

As you may have appreciated, it is possible to build a house with the recycling of objects and knowing how to reform materials that were not created with the purpose for which they end up being used, such as the clear example of this container that ended up becoming a minimalist home .
