Located in Noosa Hinterlands in Australia, this split-level modern home is contrived by Gibson Building. The highlight of his minimalist yet modern abode is its cantilevered swimming pool, which is made from a recycled shipping container. It shows the scope of shipping container architecture in near future.
This two-bedroom dwelling has been designed for a client who also wanted a 40-feet long container pool. To fulfill the client’s wish, this shipping container pool is suspended on a sturdy steel frame that sits perpendicular to the deck of the house. The house divided cleverly into several zones with different orientations to get the most of its outdoors. The main living spaces open onto a wooden deck that further connects to the cantilevered container pool.
The entire layout of this house is practical and visually-appealing, making the most out of its surroundings and the whole property. The rusty and industrial-looking facades of the house add aesthetic charm and unique character to this beautiful abode.
Just like its exterior, the interior is quite modest too. Inside the house, you can see large glass windows and polished concrete floors. The simplicity of the interior allows the inhabitants to focus more on nature from the comfort of their home. Large windows allow natural daylight to brighten up the living space and let the homeowners enjoy beautiful views of its surroundings.
Renovating shipping containers for personal residences, as well as business purposes has become popular worldwide. This is because it offers an affordable and low-income housing alternative to homeowners. Moreover, these reclaimed shipping containers can be molded into different architectural aesthetics preferred by the inhabitants.
They can embrace a minimal and contemporary design that reflects environmental awareness. The same can be experienced in this simple yet stylish home. Imagine swimming in the cantilevered pool while immersing yourself in the beauty of nature. It will indeed be a wonderful experience.
