The Casa El Tiamblo home will shut down anyone who ever said, "living in a box is not the ideal life."

Living in a box is amazing, especially if it's one designed by James and Mau Arquitectura. The home is built from blue shipping containers that stretches 40 feet in length. It's comprised with geometric shapes in a tectonic manner that's been pieced together to form a quirky and contemporary-style dwelling.

From the outside, the facade is literally a shipping box without any coloring. The paint remains the same to capture the essence of living in a massive shipping container. The interior ties in with the exterior, as both are built with rustic accents with luminous colors. The Casa El Tiamblo by James and Mau Arquitectura is a home that has a special layout with elongated rooms and sections.
