Shipping Container Home Colorado

This shipping container home by Studio HT, in the picturesque setting of Nederland, Colorado, breaks out of the perceived constraints of other cargo container homes, by placing two containers on an angle with the main living area filling the wedge between them.

The building as a whole hangs off a rocky outcrop and has breathtaking uninterrupted views of surrounding mountains.

The kitchen fills one corner of one of the containers, and features a huge cut-out to connect it to the main living space. This container is completed by an office and laundry. The opposing container houses a bathroom and two bedrooms, and a loft fills the space above the main living area.

Passive Design Reduces Loads

The home is designed to be off the grid, with passive solar design principles reducing the loads on the building.

The home enjoy optimal orientation for solar gain and passive cooling, and has green roofs and electricity provided by a photovoltaic grid.

The project exhibits the flexibility of containers in terms of creating a unique space and an impressive architectural statement on a difficult site.
