Shipping Container Architecture

Interesting Shipping Container Architecture:

The East LA Four Square Church Parsonage is a perfect example of how daring and creative shipping container architecture can get.

Designed by Peter DeMaria of DeMaria Design, this 3,400 sq ft shipping container architecture and design was based on the mix of both shipping containers and wood frames.

This superb shipping container structure was built using seven recycled shipping containers, and conventional wood frames. As a result of the unique shipping container architecture and design, Peter DeMaria won an AIA award.

The building was designed to have classrooms, a suite for residential living, offices, teen center, and a sizable multipurpose room for weddings,  conferences, celebrations, receptions, meetings among other things.

Peter DeMaria, the architect behind this unique shipping container architecture is well known in shipping container architecture circles for his unique and fascinating designs. He likes shipping container structures and building because they tend to be mold and fire resistant, affordable and strong.
