Upcycled Shipping Container House


the concept

We've seen homes made of shipping containers before here on Curbly, but never have we seen one made of so many shipping containers. How many? Six. Designed by Ken Kwok, the 2,551 s.f. Malaysian home is outfitted resource-saving features such as with a rainwater collector, dual-flush toilets and tons of windows that let in a ton of light.

Not so pretty during construction....

the containers

but look at the gorgeous outcome:   

the north side
a lot of ventilations
