Container Studio by Maziar Behrooz Architecture :
“The client essential an ar2rk studio near to her home (which we renovated in 2008). Her needs have been for a room of about 700 sf and a stringent price range of $ 60,000 and for a straightforward construction that would be both inviting and reflective.
Our answer was to use 2 9’-6” x 40’ x 8’ shipping containers (price: $ 2,500 each, delivered) perched in excess of a 9’ basis wall/cellar. By cutting 75% of the floor of the containers, we were able to move the painting studio to a decrease level by way of a wide staircase and take advantage of a higher ceiling. The staircase itself acts as a transitional space for viewing ar2rk perform.
The upper floor supplies a more intimate perform spot and a sitting region.
The containers had been painted dark charcoal to sustain continuity with the original residence and to recede in the shadows of a dense wooded internet site.”
