This shipping container residence was designed in an effort to take advantage of limited space and a low budget.
Designed by Josue Gillet in a rural French village, the 'Flying Box' takes up a 160 square meter plot of sloping land. The home was prefabricated in a factory and is made up of shipping containers -- with the design, creation and set-up process taking only three months to complete. The ground floor of this shipping container residence has a parking space and "utility rooms," while the middle and upper floors have a kitchen, living room and two bedrooms. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide beautiful views of the surrounding country.
This all-white residence was designed with both modernity and functionality in mind and sets a precedent on how to tackle unfavorable design conditions.
