Building a luxury home is probably not the first thing you would think of, but that’s exactly what Todd Miller of the architecture firm ZeilgerBuild did by designing a three storey, 557 square-metre home located in Graceville Australia. These large shipping containers are typically used to freight goods between countries, and often do not leave our shores once they arrive. The idea of recycling these containers into a habitable space, has been increasing in recent years, mainly overseas, it is great to see our own home grown variety gracing our shores in such grand proportions.
The facade of the home features a combination of corrugated steel walls and street art, this theme follows inside. Miller has brought to life the cool-feeling of industrial elements with the comforting feeling of wood, adding warmth to the interiors. The mix of wood glass and steel creates a striking home which would be great to live in, touch and see for those looking for something a little different.
Every part of the container have been utilised, including the doors which have been painted white and the handles now galvanised pipes for a unique feature in the hallway. To compete this luxury home is an outdoor saltwater swimming pool.
