Shipping Container House: Great piece from Arch Daily on our friends @studioht.

Shipping Container House / Studio H:T

Architects: Studio H:T
Location: Nederland, Colorado, USA
Project Completion: May 2010
Building Area: 1,517 sqft

This project questions the need for excessive space and challenges occupants to be efficient. Two shipping containers saddlebag a taller common space that connects local rock outcroppings to the expansive mountain ridge views. The containers house sleeping and work functions while the center space provides entry, dining, living and a loft above. The loft deck invites easy camping as the platform bed rolls between interior and exterior. The project is planned to be off-the-grid using solar orientation, passive cooling, green roofs, pellet stove heating and photovoltaics to create electricity.
