The Architecture Firm ZeiglerBuild Designed This Abode

Upcycled, shipping container homes are not just abodes used by people with a lack of funds. Instead, firms such as ZieglerBuild are re-appropriating this material and using it to create masterpieces, with ample amounts of space and flair.

This home is located in Australia, and instead of trying to wash away the graffiti covering the shipping containers, the firm decided to keep it on for an added dash of character. This graffiti work is a motif seen throughout the house, even in the interior. Artwork hangs in most of the hallways, and the steel structure of the shipping containers is also exposed inside the house, adding to its industrial nature.

Shipping container homes are no longer abodes associated with people in the lower bracket, but are now becoming chic, upscaled places of residence.
