Brooklyn Couple Building a Home From 21 Shipping Containers


Construction has begun on a new shipping container home in Brooklyn, New York. The house in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn will be a single-family residence and was designed by LOT-EK. The finished three-story house, called Carroll House, is located on 2 Monitor Street, and will be comprised of 21 stacked containers, each of which were sliced diagonally along the top and bottom. This type of design makes it possible to have outdoor space on every level. The lowest level will have an outdoor pool and BBQ area, while the top two terraces will serves as outdoor lounging areas.
