A Shipping Container Home in Pennsylvania Embraces Its Rugged Industrial Origins

Though many of the interior surfaces have been spray-foam insulated and covered in Sheetrock, the couple, drawn to the natural patina of the shipping containers, opted to keep select areas of the material exposed. Closed off by bas-relief doors designed by Mathesius, the main guest room is one of few spaces that put whole walls of the raw surface on display, painted in Benjamin Moore’s warm Kalamata and Wasabi hues.

Not all prefabs are made of sheet metal and shipping containers; these sylvan sanctuaries offer a more humanistic approach to assembly-line architecture.
