Description of this Shipping Container Studio:
Artists who want a reasonably priced studio can borrow a leaf from the Badgast Shipping Container Studio idea.
Thanks to innovation and amazing designs, you can have a shipping container studio with all the frills for far less than it would cost you to build a conventional studio.
Located in a surfers village in the Netherlands called Free Architecture Surf Terrain in Scheveningen, the Badgast shipping container studio is not only amazing designed, it also promotes green living. It is both comfortable and practical.
Constructed and designed by Refunc for Satellietgroep, the contemporary live-in shipping container studio residence attracts artists, designers, scientists and architects who are often given invitations to live and work there for four weeks or so.
The shipping container studio was built using two recycled shipping containers. One, 20ft long and the other 10 ft long.
The 10 ft long shipping container which is accessed from the ground floor through a stair case is perched atop the 20 ft long container and is the living quarters in the residence.
The 20ft long container on the other hand, is the art studio and work space and is fitted with simple, finished plywood.
Number of Shipping Containers Used in this Shipping Container Studio:
2 Shipping containers (a 10ft and 20ft container)
