This might be my favorite shipping container project so far. This really takes advantage of the properties of the container without being limited by them. The basement becomes a solution for the grade as well as a fantastic base to attach to. If my backyard looked like this, I’d love this little studio.

Wow! We knew that shipping containers could be used to build beautiful buildings, but this art studio by MB Architecture in Amagansett, New York is truly gorgeous. The artist had a limited budget of $60,000 to work with and wanted something close to home that was both functional as a working space, but would also be inviting and reflective. The exterior is kept very simply as the shipping container, but painted gray for a sophisticated look and a way to blend the container into the wooded environment. Inside, bright white walls act as a blank canvas for new artwork and ample daylighting streams in through the large windows on either end.
