Container Guest House
The Container Guest House is the first of a number of projects by Poteet Architects we’ll be featuring. As a national award-winning organization, Poteet Architects is better recognized for their delicate flexible reuse of pre-existing buildings along with a fresh, demanding method of modern interior design. This project descends from Poteet Architects’s client’s desire to experiment with shipping storage containers. She lives in a small warehouse on a former industrial site just south of downtown. The finished project serves as a guesthouse and it is fitted with a shower/WC along with a custom stainless sink. The large steel and glass lift/slide and end window wall open the interior towards the surrounding landscape. The rest of the interior is used as being a garden shed.
