Eco Container Home

Crossbox by CGArchitectes – Container Home

Crossbox is composed of four “containers”, two on the bottom and two on the top stacked crosswise, with living and dining areas on the bottom and bedrooms up top.

CGARCHITECTES designed and built this stunning “Crossbox” house composed in Brittany, France. The modern residence is clad in a low-maintenance material for a sleek finish, while the inside is simply furnished and bright. The top of the bottom box features a green roof at either end, which provides an extra planting region for the home. Meanwhile the overhang of the top box provides shade for a deck area and a mini car.


Although the home definitely seems like it would be a bit out of place in a traditional neighborhood, it’s a lovely, well executed example of prefab architecture that could be easily replicated with shipping containers.
