Though not on the market, this architectural masterpiece in Joshua Tree
is equivalent to a piece of art. London-based design firm Whitaker Studio was contracted by an LA film producer to construct a shipping container home unlike anything else on the market. Located on 90-acres in the SoCal desert, the 2,000-square-foot home mimics the appearance of cactus spikes by positioning each shipping container in a different direction, with some even arranged to look at the sky. The sharp egg white exterior and interior will be complemented with large windows and a myriad of geometrical angles inside the property. The sheer amount of ingenuity and craftsmanship that went into the creation of such a bespoke home is rather astounding.
The ingenuity and creativity on display in the trend of re-using shipping containers has created a real estate niche that not only is sensitive to environmental issues, but has created some marvels.
