Amazing shipping container house deep in the Colorado mountains

This incredible off-grid shipping container house is located in Nederland, Colorado designed by Tomecek Studio Architecture. The project questions the need for excessive space and challenges occupants to be efficient. Two shipping containers saddlebag a taller common space comprising a total of 1,500 square feet of living space and connects local rock outcroppings to the expansive mountain ridge views.

The containers hold the function of of bedrooms, bath, office, laundry and kitchen while the center space is used for entry, dining, and living. The upper floor is an open loft with a platform bed that slides on tracks outdoors as a reference to the quintessential camping experience. This shipping container house project is planned to be off-the-grid using solar orientation, passive cooling, green roofs, pellet stove heating and photovoltaics to create electricity.
