Description: GCARCHITECTES has named this home made up of 4 shipping containers Crossbox. Situated in Brittany, France, the exterior of this home is sophisticated and sleek while the interior is beautifully furnished, yet simple and clean. Clad in basic materials, which make for an atheistically pleasing home while the extra materials provide a pleasant shaded area for a deck and small vehicle cover space. This is the epitome of modern meets practical!
Number of Shipping Containers Used: 4 containers – 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.

Benefits: The biggest difference and benefit of the Crossbox, is the opportunity for numerous planting regions in the home, specifically available by the green roof at the top of the bottom box. Some people may think that this particular design is too out there, however if you want your home to stand out in a crowded neighborhood, this is definitely the way to go!
