A playhouse, a garden retreat and a guesthouse for visitors are the roles that this stunning structure developed by Texas architect Jim Poteet will play. Made from an 8 by 40 feet shipping container, this beautiful studio sits in San Antonio. A portion of it behave like a garden shed, while the remaining area is dedicated to the living space.
Resting on a base made from recycled telephone poles, the eco studio flaunts green features like a living green roof, composting toilet, rainwater collection and eco friendly finishes. An armature on the back of the container will beautify the structure with vines and the floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows bring in ample of natural light.
The deep blue colored backyard retreat includes heating and air-conditioning, bamboo flooring and wallcovering, and a small sink and shower, whose graywater will be used to water the plants in the garden. It also has lamps that are custom made by the architect from recycled tractor parts fitted with vapor lamps.
