The East LA Four Square Church Parsonage – Shipping Container Structure by Demaria Design

Peter DeMaria, AIA, of DeMaria Design, has recieved an award from the South Bay/Long Beach Chapter of the AIA for his design of the East LA Four Square Church Parsonage.  This project was built using a hybrid form of traditional stick frame construction and seven recycled cargo containers.

The 3,400 square-foot structure includes a residential living suite, classrooms, a teen center, offices, and a great room for weddings, educational conferences, religious ceremonies, neighborhood gatherings, and family celebrations.

Peter DeMaria is a leader in the container architecture field and has been researching this form of construction for several years because containers are strong, fireproof, mold resistant, and affordable as a structural system.  The Redondo Beach House is perhaps one of his most notable residential container projects.
