Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 168

Shipping Container Home Book 168 – Dublin’s first Certified Container Home

Todays featured Container Home was built by PJ McGann and LID architects to explore the potential of recycled shipping containers as a means of creating a low-cost family house, this project uses eleven standard length containers stacked on three levels. Large areas of glazing to the street side counter the spatial limitations of the container volume. Unusually, the main social space is up on the second level, so as to gain better views across the city and an unimpeded south-west aspect. Bedrooms are on the first floor level with home office and flexible spaces on the ground floor, offering an activated street frontage.

The second floor is accessed via a plywood square spiral staircase; this smart and functional space-saving design acts as a neat metaphor for the entire build.
