Elegant Shipping-Container Studio on a Budget
The back and the front are both entirely cut open for window space so day-lighting streams in at both ends.
The soaring double height walls inside make for large inviting white spaces for artwork. Because the side-by-side shipping containers are set on top of the 9 foot foundation wall, the ceiling is a soaring 18 feet high, perfect for large artwork displays.
The idea was to have a place that was functional as a working space, but would also be inviting and reflective, to encourage the alpha-rhythm of creativity as well.
Outside, the bluntly industrial shipping container exterior is not disguised, merely enhanced with a coat of a sophisticated blue-gray paint that somehow works with the environment as well, while establishing its uber-gritty industrial design credentials.
