My name is Michael Joyner, out of J0Ystudios in Houston, TX. We are a small time architectural design firm that work on custom home designs. I love designing with shipping containers, and was very eager to start working on this project for you!
First off, congratulations on your engagement, and I wish the best for the both of you! My wife and I just got married a year ago and are in the process of planning out our own shipping container home ourselves! So this project has made me very happy, and I wanted to give it everything a new couple could need.
The house is made up of 7 (highcube - 9'6" tall) containers, 20'x3/30'x2/40'x2. Its a 3 bedroom/ 2.5 bath at 1,963 square feet. The concept for the house was to group 6 containers to make space available for master suite, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Then, to give you the open concept living/kitchen you want, one 20' container (which will hold the kitchen and pantry) will be placed 20' from grouped containers and the space in between will be enclosed with glass walls to create the living area. Entry opens into the living area, 3 car garage placed on right side of grouped containers for easy access to mudroom. Mudroom is just to the right off entry, it includes closet and lots of shelving under the stairs, a stacked washer/dryer, and a 1/2 bath. Master suite is spacious and secluded. Two 40' containers make up large master bathroom, closet and bedroom. Walk in shower, stand alone tub, double vanity, storage, folding station, shoe storage, and lots of space for clothes. Master bedroom overlooks backyard with sliding glass doors.
The stairs are near mudroom/entry area and take you up to a sitting/reading area at the top of the stair, which has custom bookshelf built-in to act as a railing for stairwell. There is a door at the top of the stairs that takes you out onto big patio above garage. 2 bedrooms with patio access and built-in closets, and a full bathroom at rear of 2nd floor. A loft/office space is created above the kitchen container by extending walls up to match height of the stacked group of containers, and then connected by a catwalk to rest of 2nd floor. This space could be used in a variety of different ways, its up to you. By positioning the living/kitchen space towards the front of grouped containers, the back yard has a courtyard feel (perfect for a future pool).
20' highcube shipping container =3
30' highcube shipping container =2
40' highcube shipping container =2
I believe the house has a good flow, and fits what you have asked for while making a modern design work with shipping containers in a fresh new form. I hope you enjoy looking through it, because I enjoyed building it.
Thank You & Good Luck!
