Design Concept

Foundation Design

Before the container modules are delivered on site, it’s advisable to have an appropriate foundation to accommodate your new build.  Use a raised foundation level to elevate the containers away from moisture. Since this is a storied building, you are advised to consult a structural engineer on the appropriate foundation design.  This house is designed with a raft foundation, you can watch our previous presentation on five foundations types to use on a shipping container house.

Structure and Modification

This Modern Shipping Container apartment block is formed by combining two 2 bedroom housing units + a three bedroom housing unit with two staircase shafts with direct access to each unit. The 3 bedroom housing unit is designed using 3 40 foot containers placed in parallel to each other to create 960 square feet of habitable space.

 

Floor plan Layout | SHELTERMODE HOMES

 

The 2 bedroom block has three 20 foot containers placed in parallel to each other to form a compact housing unit of 480 square feet of habitable space. Proper reinforcement to take care of lateral movements and live loads should be considered during the process. The containers are stacked 3 stories high to create creating a total of 9 units on two wings. All the doors and windows are optimal in size save for the open plan living room in both units that will require additional structural reinforcements. You are advised to consult a structural engineer to execute all the structural modifications.

Interior Design

Adopt a minimalist interior design when furnishing your Container house. Use space saving furniture ideas like murphy beds to allow for multi functional use of the space without littering the space with too much furniture. Use Flat-pack cabinets for the wardrobes rather than custom units since they are versatile and come in a range of sizes and colours. Flat-packs will help you save on time and money.

Insulation and temperature control

The interior of the living space is lined with an appropriate insulation material depending on the climate. Insulation is also essential to preventing condensation, which can corrode the container and cause mould. To achieve the best results in cold climate locations use closed cell spray form insulation. In tropical climate, keeping away heat from your house is the biggest challenge. Insulation blanked with pasteboard lining will do just fine. The top most containers are covered with a corrugated steel roofing to shield the habitable space from hot weather and also give design flare to the housing units.

Outdoors and Exterior Design

The original cargo doors on the shipping containers in the one bedroom unit have been removed and replaced with full height sliding doors to enhance access and day-lighting. This design comes with additional timber modules to form the Juliet balcony enclosure. The original cargo doors on the 40 foot containers are used in an open position to create Private Juliet balcony to the living room on the 3 bedroom housing units. If you are using a one trip shipping containers, consider leaving the exterior as it is, with its original colour and markings to preserve its charm and history, to help on saving the cost of painting the exterior afresh.

Container House Design with a Breezeway-BREEZEWAY 960

BREEZEWAY 960 is a 4 bedroom Luxury Shipping Container House built using 4 shipping containers and a breezeway to create 1700 square feet of habitable space.

Design Concept

The design concept of this 4 bedroom house is in the form a bridge with two 20 foot containers on the ground floor with a breezeway in between creating 1700 square feet of habitable space. Alternatively, a single forty foot container can be used on the ground floor level and cut in two to the support the 40 foot containers on the first floor level. This is an efficient way of cutting costs by using three containers instead of four.




The breezeway creates extra floor space in between the container on the ground floor to be used as an open plan living space. The bridge structure is a beautiful design concept that allows the house to use cool breezes for natural ventilation effectively, and also allows the house to take full advantage of its surroundings for maximum daylighting and unobstructed views. It is advisable to properly position the house to take advantage of the breezes and views.




 

 

 

 

Design Brief

The functions accommodated on the ground floor level include a kitchen and laundry space in one container and a guest bedroom and a bathroom in the other container. The breezeway in-between the two containers serves as an open plan living room with dining space. The living room is enclosed by full height folding glass doors opening to sheltered outdoor spaces on both ends. The open, space flows seamlessly onto outdoor patios on both ends opening the living room to the indoor-outdoor living environment.

 

 

 

The containers above are placed with a 1.3m gap in-between the containers to accommodate a single flight staircase which straddles in the middle of the living room. On the first floor level, two bedrooms on the end of the containers sharing a bathroom fitted glass shower cubicle, are connected through an open a rumpus room with a small office nook.  A generous master en-suite with a walk-in closet and a mini lounge occupies the open ends of the containers.  The roof of the guest bedroom container serve as an outdoor terrace space for the master bedroom.




 

 

 

 

Interior Design

The interior of the house should be lined with an appropriate insulation material depending on the local climate. Without insulation, the house would be like an oven in summer and freezing in winter. Insulation is also essential to preventing condensation, which can corrode the container and cause mould. Watch our previous presentation on 8 ways on How to insulate a shipping container house, for more understanding.

 

 

 

 

Paint the Interior walls light coloured to help kill the claustrophobic feel from the narrow width of shipping containers. Light colours make the interior spaces appear brighter and more prominent. Feel free to explore trans-formative furniture to help use a single space for more than one function. Use Flat-pack cabinets for the kitchen and wardrobe rather than custom units. Flat packs are versatile and come in a range of sizes, colours plus fixing instructions.  Flat-packs help to save on time and money.




 

Exterior Design

The gap from the resultant space on the sides of the two 40 foot containers is filled with timber cladding. The container walls on the outside are left bare to celebrate the industrial character of the building. When using one trip containers, it is advisable to retain the original colours and markings to celebrate the maritime history of the shipping containers. Alternatively, feel free to check out our previous video on the types of exterior finishes used on shipping container houses.




 

 

 

Outdoor Living

The containers sit on a raised concrete strip foundation to elevate the containers away from moisture. The elevated position of the container also provides the height necessary to construct an outdoor deck and the entrance porch. A deck is a quick and easy way to extend the limited living space inside a shipping container. The house has frontal deck sheltered with a glass canopy suspended on steel cable which doubles up as an entrance porch to the house.  The folding glass doors lead to a deck on the rear of the building ideal for outdoor lounging, BBQ, or intimate outdoor dining. The deck has a canvas roof on a steel framed pergola to shield the space from elements.




 

 

The original cargo doors on the guest bedroom container, are used in an open position to create a private Juliet balcony. All the original cargo doors have been left intact to offer additional security and also act as storm shutters. This design series uses standardised, optimal sized windows and doors which don’t require any special modification to the walls of the shipping containers, apart from the big openings in the kitchen, the rumpus room and the master bedroom. Feel free to explore eco-friendly materials for both exterior and interior finishes to use on the house. The house hot water and electricity can be powered by hot water solar panels and photovoltaic systems respectively integrated into the roof.

MODBOX 2880

MODBOX 2880 is a three story, Luxury Shipping Container House designed using nine, 40 foot Shipping Containers. This design uses nine, 40 foot shipping containers to create a 3000+ square feet “MODBOX”. Three sets of 40 foot containers are stacked to create a 3 storied house with a dynamic form. The set containers in the middle and top levels are sheared horizontally in opposite direction to create cantilevers over 3 magnificent outdoor spaces. A private rooftop terrace on the top-level for the master bedroom, a covered balcony to the living space on the middle level and a covered carport on the ground level.

Foundation Design

The containers sit on a 250mm reinforced concrete-raft foundation. This allows to elevate the containers off the ground away moisture.  You are encouraged to observe construction good practices on; concrete ratio mix, climate and concrete curing, when casting your foundation slab. To fit the elevated steel frame, consult a structural engineer on the correct foundation type and steel member sizes to use. For more information, you are encouraged to go through our previous presentation on The Top 5 Foundation Types used in Shipping Container Homes and Buildings to understand more on foundation design.



 

 MODBOX 2880 by SHELTERMODE

Structure and Modifications.

The roof and walls of shipping containers are structural and load bearing. Containers are designed to be loaded at the corners. Any intermediary loading, must be reinforced. Cutting out too much steel from the walls for doors and windows interferes with the structural integrity of shipping containers. Our design principle as ShelterMODE Homes, we do not tamper with the roof and the floor of our shipping container modules. This design retains the original container cargo doors on the container ends to create Juliet balconies to the master bedroom, the study, family room and the kitchen yard on the ground floor to compliment the functionality of this family home.

 

MODBOX 2880 by SHELTERMODE
ELEVATIONS | MODBOX 2880 by SHELTERMODE

In this design, we do not have any specialized modifications. The containers on the left wing of the house are stacked at the corners without any intermediary loading linked with the staircase vertically for access. The left wing of the house has only a single par of containers elevated on the first floor level with an elegant steel frame painted in elegant red to create the lightness feel of using shipping containers. The design has used optimal sized windows and doors which require no specialized modification to the walls of the shipping container.  For the study and family room respectively, the end panels have been fitted with full glazing to create uninterrupted outdoor connection to the spaces.

MODBOX 2880 by SHELTERMODE
ELEVATIONS | MODBOX 2880 by SHELTERMODE

The entire frontage width of the living room to the rear of the building is fronted by an open deck for outdoor living. The stack of containers is covered with a butterfly roof oriented inwards towards the center spine. This iconic roof is also a design statement that gives character to this family home. For ShelterMODE Homes we do not drive cars into a shipping container for a garage. We find it not economical and also space constricting.  In this regard, we opt to elevate containers above and cover the residual space below it with appropriate siding to enclose the garage.

Outdoors and Exterior Design

As a sustainable design statement, the exterior of all the shipping containers are left as they are, including its original yellow, grey and blue color and markings. This helps to preserve the charm and the history of the containers in addition to reducing costs on painting the exterior.

To minimize the claustrophobic feel of living in a shipping container, the walls of the living area can be finished in monochrome light colored paint to make the spaces appear bigger. Since this is a container house, consider using similar materials to finish the kitchen backsplash and the bathroom walls. This repetitive theme creates harmony therefore making the house appear bigger.  Consider using Flat-pack cabinets for the kitchen cabinets and the wardrobes to cut on costs.
