Eco Container Home

Graceville Container Home, Brisbane, Australia

The Graceville Container Home is a fabuous family house located in Brisbane Australia. Created from 31 shipping containers, it is a one-off bespoke design created by Zeigler Build. Situated on 706 square metre block in the suburb of Graceville, the spectacular home stands out in a quiet neighbourhood of more traditional Queensland properties.

Todd and Di Miller purchased the block of land in 2011 with the expectation to renovate the current house that was there. However during the 2011 Queensland floods, the existing house was destroyed,

Completed in just 5 months, this is the largest shipping container house of its kind in Australia. Sprawling over three levels it features clean lines, open spaces and quality finishes.

Costing around US $450.000 to build, the ground floor is comprised of 10 shipping containers and contains a double garage, gym, home office, pool room and art studio; it will also be flood proof. The second layer is stacked with 11 containers and feature an enormous open plan living room / kitchen, bathroom, three bedrooms and a study. The third floor is built using 10 more containers and houses the master bedroom, walk in wardrobe, en-suite and a deck / terrace. Glass maximises natural light and a mix of materials, including the signature containers, are cleverly used to industrial chic effect.
