Double Storey Shipping Container Studio

With a budget of $60,000 this gorgeous double storey shipping container studio in Amagansett, New York sits in a woodland forest and provides a stunning yet calming backdrop to artistic endeavours.

Two high cube 40 foot containers sat side by side create the ground floor level while a subground level was created with concrete which acts as the sub floor studio/painting area.

The containers themselves cost only $2500 each, including delivery.

The two levels are connected with light and space as the majority of the floors of both containers have been removed which creates a serene double height space with treed views. A wide stairway also acts to connect the upstairs and downstairs spaces while also acting as hanging  and viewing space for art work.

Internally colour is kept to a minimum so that the woodland views can take pride of place. Crisp white and the clean lines of the internal space allow room for creativity.

Externally the containers have been painted dark grey so that they fit into the woodland setting.
