Artist’s Shipping Container Home and Studio
In Savannah, GA there is an abundance of unwanted shipping containers left in the city’s port. After being used for one-way flow of consumer goods from China to America these heavy duty containers can easily be re-purposed for environmentally conscious homes.
Julio Garcia, architect, decided to do just that with two 40' shipping containers to build his own home and studio. The two shipping containers are placed about 6' apart.
The 6' gap has a wood-framed floor and shed roof, and the container sidewalls were cut open to create a large spacious living room. This home has one bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen.
