The Les Grandes Tables of Seguin Island in France is a perfect example of how using basic recycled shipping containers as a structure , with enough additions a completely different image can be achieved , opposite to the basic geometry of the containers. It embodies the idea that with minimal resources architecture can achieve a maximum effect . Located inside the structure is a restaurant for 120 guests and greenhouse for more exotic plants , which are uncommon on the island. This a shining example of how modern architecture can achieve a spectacular result using minimal means and resources.

Boxpark-Shoreditch-Shipping-Container-Shopping-Mall

Containers as a high-quality shopping space (akin to a mall ) is a new idea and concept and the Boxpark Shoreditch is the first in this line , crafted using 61 containers, it appeared after several small business owners could not buy or rent any shops in the urban area of London . Hence came this idea that would solve this problem . More interesting through its use rather then design it uses 41 containers on the lower part and 20 on the upper floor. The flexibility and adaptability of the design makes up for the more rugged design providing a solution for customer and owner alike.

Bernard Morin and Joyce Labelle took the idea of a homes as shipping containers to a whole new level. Several designs often strive to either make a point out of living in a container and flaunt its exterior rugged and industrial looks , or try to cover it up as much as possible and make it look like a usual home as much as possible . This design answers the question “what if you only use the structure of containers and invest the same amount of money as you would in a normal house ? , how would the end result look ?”, so here it is  ,  a good looking villa  . Though at its 3000 square feet and five bedrooms , costing a whopping 175, 000 $ it can no longer make a case for cheap fast and easy .

#20 WingHouse Unravels its Magic

WingHouse-in-all-its-splendor

WingHouse is truly unique in the way it adapts to the surrounding space and how it is built to generate spaces. The first odd thing about it is the fact that everything is cramped around in the same space. But here is where the design truly shines , using extendable wings ( extended through the use of a crane) the house can extend and create additional space for all your requirements. A great option for both a home but also for an office or business place , that can extend and expand to accommodate new offices .
