Joshua Tree Container House By Whitaker Studio

Oct 9, 2017

One of the most influential designs in the history of the world is that of the common shipping container. Back in the 1970s, these simple boxes changed the way the global economy worked – making it more standardized, and easier to manage. Now, containers are once again getting some shine as they become the focus of imaginative architects and designers. Take the Joshua Tree Residence by Whitaker Studio for instance.

Looking like an industrial dandelion or an explosion at a port of entry, this home is made up of a series of shipping containers that protrude out from one center point. While the exterior looks like a fantastic mess, the interior is calm, clean, and filled with natural light piped in from these long containers – each of which has been arranged in a way to protect the privacy of those living in the home. The back of the home features a private wooden deck hidden by the surrounding Joshua Tree Desert. Not that bad for bunch of containers.
