Shipping container homes have been a very popular architectural expression in contemporary times. The widespread use can be traced down to appeals of sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and overall modularity. One of the newer examples of shipping container homes comes from US studio MB Architecture who worked on a stacked design located in Amagansett, New York. The elegant dwelling is black and minimalist. Its use is intended to be occasional as it is a holiday home for a family with three kids.
The house spans two floors and was prefabricated off-site and assembled in place thereafter. The units feature floor-to-ceiling windows that do not only expose the dwellers to serene views of nearby vegetation but also allow ample natural light to flood the interior.
