The conversion of shipping containers into homes and other habitable structures has become one of the most intense areas of architectural interest of the past few years. Designers from Adam Kalkin to LOT-EK to Marmol Radziner have deftly adapted these modular storage units to new uses in eye-catching compositions that manage to combine an industrial aesthetic with sleek modern living.
Giving fresh meaning to the concept of a “starter home”, you now have the opportunity to become an architectural patron of cutting edge architecture by collecting one or more of these 1:12 scale models of converted pods at a much lower cost than if you were building them at full size.
Choose from a container converted to a living room, kitchen or master bedroom suite. Each comes fully built-out with a contemporary-styled finish and furniture package. You can start with one, or two, or the complete package of three pods. A detachable deck with deck furniture is ordered separately and will fit any of the pods. When you acquire the complete set you also receive an appropriately astro-grassed platform on which to proudly display your new trophy home.
Note: Because the containers are hand-constructed by an experienced pod builder, each creation is uniquely executed and may vary in small ways from the photographs.
Pods are 20 x 8.5 x 8 in. (50.8 x 21.5 x 20.3 cm). The grass platform is 24 x 45 in. (60.9 x 114.3 cm).
Made in the USA.
