Low Impact Container Studio in Texas


Dwell has the story on this 8'x40' container space in San Antonio designed by Jim Poteet.  The tiny retreat – living space, bathroom, and sink and counter – is sandwiched by a foundation of recycled telephone poles and roof of lush greenery.  The container also has bamboo flooring and wallcovering, an electric composting toilet from Sun-Mar, a mini-split heating and cooling system, and large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors to allow natural light.  This illustrates, with impressive flare, what can be done with containers, don’t you agree?

    I’ve been looking for a tidy, green option for weekend getaways on our property in East Texas…this totally fits the bill. Clean, simple and sustainable. It would also make an adorable mom’s or teens quarters if you had the property, and some strategically placed landscaping to ensure at least some privacy. Excellent use of containers!
