Boulder, Colorado’s Studio H:T is an innovative architectural firm hellbent on making a difference. Their “Container House” is a project that reflects their desire to “create buildings, objects, and environments that heighten the senses and celebrate the unique qualities of place.”
This project rejects the mainstream desire for excessive space and challenges occupants to be efficient. The design features two shipping containers that ‘saddlebag” a taller common space that connects to the adjacent rock outcroppings and overlooks expansive mountain views.
The two containers house a bedroom, bath, laundry, kitchen and office spaces while the center space provides entry, dining, living and a sleeping loft/deck above. The project was designed to be off-grid using solar orientation, passive cooling, green roofs and pellet stove heating, while photovoltaics provide electricity.
The home was an AIA Colorado Citation Award recipient.
