Container Crossbox with a Green Roof

Crossbox-Javier-Callejas-day

When using shipping containers for a structure, you'll want to do your homework, but often the results can be stunning, as is the case here.  Located in Brittany, France, Crossbox was built with four containers and topped with greenery.  Two modules cantilever over the other two, but you can hardly tell what's going on as drywall and cladding camouflage the industrial skeleton.

    We are not going to have a green roof. But we are breaking ground this month on our container home just south of Austin, TX. Check out our site.

      as if you can have green roofing for your trailer – oh wait, there’s moss!

    Wow – that Green Roof garden looks totally amazing. The design of the house is minimalistic yet grand. It doesn’t look like a Container Box at all – in fact, I never would’ve guessed it was, until I saw it on your post!

    It doesn’t look like a container home at all – I mean, look at all that interior decor. The green roofing made a fantastic touch to the overall look of the house as well. The house looks like a vase for indoor plants, from the outside!

    I am wondering…. what kind of exterior cladding that is. What is the brand / manufacturer of this product?
