AVOCET QUAY SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

Greetings from The United Kingdom! 🙂

AVOCET QUAY SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

A nifty touch-up can really uplift a shipping container home! UK-based architecture and interior design firm Fiftypointeight was tasked with reviving a modular 1960s deck-house. The humble abode in question resides in Avocet Quay, in the coastal town of Emsworth.

Already impressed? Wait until you take a look inside. We like the way different themes are subtly carried across the living room: From the marine-inspired artistic touches to the matching materials used for the curtains and cushions.

The sliding door ensures the owners of this private residence are able to fully immerse themselves in the dockside vistas.  A splash of blue accentuates the glistening cabinetry we’ll find in the kitchen. A similar palette makes an appearance in the cozy bathroom – though the checkered patterns here are much more pronounced. The master bedroom is a sweet melody of contemporary art and decor.

Now we inch closer to the final room of this house. It’s almost as if we’re about to step into a castle’s dungeon, right? But never fear – there are no dragons or gruesome creatures awaiting us below. We’re merely stepping into a dreamy princess’s bedroom. Well, technically it sleeps two royal darlings. Numbers aside, you gotta love the delicate touches enveloping this charming room.

A modernized modular home can be quite inspiring, don’t you agree? This compact dwelling, in particular, has been deftly spruced up with all the living embellishments that we cherish in a container home.

 

So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
