Sharing is caring!

This shipping container home might be the ugly duckling on the outside, but the inside screams beautiful swan. This “swan” sits nestled in the woods of Savannah, Georgia. 

As a port city, Savannah has an abundance of obsolete shipping containers. Artist Julio Garcia repurposed two of these containers to create his residence and studio.

Design meets function meets artistic style in this studio home. It may not look spectacular on the outside, but what it lacks in appeal on the exterior, it more than makes up for inside.

The two containers are offset with a glass room adjoining them in the middle. The raised roof in the middle brings in plenty of light and adds vertical space to the home.

Interior

As you can see, the interior of this home is incredible. Open, bright, spacious, and modern. Probably not what  you’d expect when viewing the exterior.

The exterior of the home is actually rather quaint, and slightly appealing in a recycled kind of way. The “Wow Factor” factor strikes you when you view the interior. It just goes to show you that you should never judge a book by its cover. In this case, don’t let the outside fool you. This is a home worth a second look.
