Greetings from Malaysia! 🙂
Did you know there is a beach-side resort in Malaysia where you can stay in a shipping container house? I didn’t until I stumbled upon The Ocean Residence’s Container House. This place is so stunning it definitely is going on my future travel list! 🙂
So without further ado, welcome to The Ocean Residence Langkawi, where you’ll find one of the most compelling pieces of container home architecture around. This Malaysian beach-side resort offers a sustainable, but very luxurious, accommodation choice for its guests. The Container House is one of the hotel’s signature suites, and it’s made almost entirely out of shipping containers.
“The Container House is painted in a maroon hue to evoke a rusty, vintage look that brings back the memories of long sea voyages and exotic harbors. Made from 18 industrial freight containers, the Container House is artfully assembled into an avant-garde building which is still labeled with the original metal plates…” says The Ocean Residence’s website.
Pretty captivating, right? Come along for a quick tour:
As you can see, brick walls separate each module. The metallic roof is quite remarkably designed too. A side view shows us a harmonious blend of rustic and refined elements. The outside table and chairs ensure all guests get to soak up the plentiful oceanic views.
Enter one of the suites to discover a hospitable living area. Red curtains and cushions match the Container House’s exteriors. A cushioned bed brings some added comfort to this charming living space. And a splash of purple brings a bit of liveliness to this abode. You’ll also find the kitchen and dining area nestled right by the living room.
Delicate floral paintings provide an interesting contrast to the final bedroom suite’s brick walls. On the side, you’ll find the elegant bathroom. Bathroom curtains sustain the red motif carried across the house. A white vase brings a bit of finesse to this lush area.
Isn’t the Container House lovely? Its contemporary design and meticulous decor prove that you can bring plenty of luxury into a modular shipping container structure.
Now initially when I read about this shipping container house I thought “You can rent all 18 containers at once?!” I mean you probably can, but the house is divided into 10 different “container suites.” Here are the links for all 10! I assure you, it is worth a look! 🙂
So what do you think? Would you stay here? 🙂
