Container House La Maison Conteneur A 2 bedroom container home built by Les Collections Dubreuil in Quebec, Canada. canadacontainer houseLes Collections Dubreuilquebec by Steven Previous Post Next Post
I’m not sure I could live with such little separation between the bed and the open space toilet. Just not that fun and really rather silly.
I was thinking along the same lines myself…..
Functional but lacking in any real warmth.
I’m just not a fan of reclaimed wood and city dump metal scraps combined with some new/modern pieces.
I would guess that this is a guy pad.
It does nothing for me.
The excellent combination of materials, steel, reclaimed woods, iron accents, glass and concrete combines brilliantly toward the integrity of the container aesthetic. I’d love to see the floor plan and more of the site. Thanks for the inspiration!
Compare and contrast… whether the three prior comments… or the sensibility and “integrity of the container aesthetic”, there is much admirable thought, design and choice shown whether or not my particular, quintessential taste or a black and white clear cut bias. If most of the materials are salvaged, recycled or up-cycled and help sustain the planet and affordability for perspective home builders and buyers… I’M ALL FOR IT. Maybe by keeping the building cost lower it allows more of the budget to be spent on higher end, most efficient and economically/ecologically sound appliances as modern as the state of the art available at the time. SIMPLEXITY lol …there… I said it… hope the ‘gist’ isn’t lost.
I love the exterior box-on-box design, with large glass windows. I’m also okay with the industrial kitchen, which looks like a fun place for cooking. The open concept bathroom (both the exposed toilet and the “island” tub in the middle of the floor) is less appealing, even for one occupant. The rest of the place is fine IMHO.
