An Amazing Split-Level Home With A Shipping Container Pool
Shipping containers have become quite popular lately seeing how they can be repurposed into all sorts of cool housing projects. But that’s not all. A company called Shipping Container Pools produces…you guessed it…swimming pools made out of repurposed shipping containers. It’s not the first time we’ve stumbled upon this concept but it is inspiring and interesting to see the details nevertheless. This is a house by Gibson Building, located in Noosa Hinterlands in Australia. It’s a split-level retreat with a modest size and design and with a big personality.
This is a two-bedroom contemporary home designed for a client who insisted on having a 40 ft container pool. The pool is suspended on a steel frame over the sloping ground and is placed perpendicular to the deck and the house. This layout is as practical as it is eye-catching and mesmerizing, the cantilevered pool making the most out of the views and emphasizing the open and wild nature of the whole property. We love the rusty, industrial look of the facades and the pool’s exterior and we think it helps to give this house a lot of character.
