It’s no surprise to see the popularity of shipping container homes increase in recent times, especially when architects just keep getting more and more creative with what they can do with them. Adding to the list of innovative shipping container homes is the prefabricated WFH House, which incorporates the use of recycled shipping containers into a modular building system. Designed by Danish architectural studio Arcgency, the home is also coupled with a online personalization system that allows clients to customize their own home, including its layout, size, facade and interior.
The 180 square meter (1,937 sq. ft.) WFH House features a predefined framework, which the architects claim ensures the use of quality materials, while also maintaining architectural integrity. Two rows of recycled shipping containers are stacked on top of one another, creating a multi-level home filled with high ceilings, open space and an abundance of natural light. The home is made up of an open living space, a kitchen that is built into the walls and four rooms that can be used as bedrooms, workspaces or recreation retreats.
