A unique, modern home constructed from six shipping containers, located on 50 acres of open green landscape and woods in rural upstate New York.
From the outside, the structure (stacked 3-containers wide, 2-tall, designed by esteemed architects LOT-EK and featured in DWELL magazine) is defined by angular windows cutting diagonally across the rust patina-ed corten steel exterior, with red mahogany front and back decks jutting out in opposite directions as if peeled from the edges. The large windows, sliding glass doors, and open layout create a seamless feeling with surrounding trees and allow consistent natural light with evolving accents and shadows throughout the day.
The first floor features a utilitarian-minded matte black and white kitchen centered in a living space with a large drum fireplace and wood stack display. Bright-colored decor and plant life add warmth to the container’s original hardwood floors and scuffed-up steel charm. The industrial-meets-natural aesthetic continues upstairs, where a master bedroom, guest bedroom, and children’s room all catch the sun at different hours.
The front deck and roof view a fenced-in garden and greenhouse, set between pine and fruit trees, and the entrances to several paths leading to untouched forests and farmland.
Events limited to 50 people.
No nailing into or painting of walls.
