Shipping container garden office

The Randy Bens Architecture practice in Canada embraced the shedworking ethic when it made a recent move to expand, not into a traditional office but to a garden office built from a larger than normal corten stell shipping container, reduced from 40′ to 28' long, 11.5′ wide and 9.5′ tall.

It has yellow cedar cladding on the outside and birch plywood lining on the inside where there is the studio work space, a small kitchen, and a bathroom. There is also a rather nice large picture window at one end and the whole thing cantilevers off the foundation. Below is an excellent short video of the office being delivered.
