Container House Fit for Valentine’s Day

Okay, really the only connection to Valentine’s Day is the color of the home, but check out this bold, industrial container home in Lille, France.  Designed by Patrick Partouche with eight intermodal shipping container units, the home has about 2,200 square feet with great views through large windows and light through polycarbonate panels.  Maison Container Lille installed by crane in three days of site work.

Inside the modular home, the owners re-purposed corrugated sheets as artwork, tables, and other decorative elements.

The grate walk is one crazy feature — imagine what it feels like walking on that barefooted — while the rest of the interior has a “palette of galvanized steel, poppy red columns, and wood” that’s preferred by the owners, according to Design Boom.
