The small populated location of Wye River— a town in Victoria, Australia that is a popular tourist destination in the summer, is the perfect spot for a shipping container hotel that overlooks the Otway Coast.

House 28 is the sustainable project of Melbourne-based Studio Edwards. The stilted structure bears minimal impact on the surrounding trees and vegetation. Concealed in greenery, the building is made out of three six-meter long shipping containers. Thanks to the shading and overall simplicity of the materials, the building perfectly blends into the landscape. Thus, the shipping container hotels are not only kind to the environment, as well as a peaceful weekend retreat for urban dwellers, but they also don't disturb the visual appeal of the scenery, nor do they have an overbearing presence for the residents of Wye River.
