Six Oaks Shipping Container Residence by David Fenster
By Inthralld on Nov 27, 2012
David Fenster of Modulus in California was commissioned by a local family to create a dreamy getaway home in the woodsy area of the Santa Cruz Mountains. With the area lending itself to a more rustic and natural-feeling retreat, the homeowners decided to juxtapose the green elements with some metal shipping containers as the foundation for the structure.
Nestled in with the trees, the super resilient containers aren’t too stark against the lush greenery, with their rusty red coloring and clear glazing. The site where the 1,200-square-foot house now sits was previously an old railway. Nowadays it serves as an escape, with light filtering through the entirely glass spine of the residence.
