The popularity of container homes has exploded in recent years with many people looking to avoid lengthy mortgages by being more creative with their self built properties. Although the lack of space may seem like a hindrance at first, there are some truly brilliant solutions being designed in these modern marvels.
Today we're looking at the beautiful work of the architects of MOVI EVLERI from the Turkish city of Istanbul, for inspiring container living…
If you're into luxury finishes then this most likely isn't the style for you but it's ideal if you're looking for the rustic feel.
As you can see from the picture above, simple and industrial style materials can maintain that theme while adding elements like a porch area. A perfect way to add even more character.
This simple and rustic feel can bring a more friendly cosy feeling to homes that may otherwise be missing from more polished designs.
These kinds of builds are perfect if you can afford a plot of land instead of rebuilding an existing building.
The amazing thing with container homes is that you can redesign the interior to look like any other style of property which can make for some brilliant little surprises when you step into a home. These spaces may not be huge and expansive, but incredibly cosy. Not to mention it's a brilliant excercise in using space effectively.
Here white wood panelling has been applied all over to cover the inside steel walls with darker wood on the doors and panels for a great contrasting effect.
There are really endless opportunities when it comes to how to you can customise a container and this one is definitely unique use of imagination. This brilliant bit of architecture uses a lot of glass to let light into the small space and produce a beautiful design from the outside.
Once again wood adds a rustic touch and stops the construction looking too clean or cold.
Inside you can see a great example of decorating to maximise space. You can see clearly that it hold its own against any home that is considered a normal home. Sacrificing space doesn't necessarily mean you have to give up on creating a beautiful home.
