Maison Container Project by Patrick Partouche
Let us start our look at fabulous shipping container homes with this beautiful and simply stunning Patrick Partouche-designed living space called the Maison container project. The two-story building is an absolute delight to step into and once you do, you will almost instantly forget the fact that you are residing in a house built by using 8 large shipping containers. Located on the banks of river Lille in France, it is nestled on a 2,240 square feet area and € 221,000 went into bringing it to life.
The lovely interiors have a light and airy feel to them thanks to the use of floor to ceiling glass windows, but the designer has left the container doors intact to ensure that there is complete privacy when needed. A metal spiral staircase, modern décor and ergonomic design grace this fabulous container home.
