Upcycled materials and pieces are a wonderful way to incorporate already used building materials and finishes. When there’s a way to create a home and its shell completely out of recycled items, it rarely happens; that is unless Atelierworkshop is involved.
Their Port-a-Bach container home is a prime example of beauty in upcycled design, starting with an empty shipping container. Built as a prototype in 2007, this project was designed to be environmentally clean, inexpensive and portable. The box sized space allows the users to create rooms within the large open living space, and sleeps 4 comfortably with a double bed and 2 fold out bunk beds. The counter space and storage is limited but it possesses a beautiful aesthetic when completely unfolded.
