Daily Dose: Shipping Container Studio

Add to TwitterAs an artist, I am particularly interested in the airy, clean-cut studio space created by Maziar Behrooz of MB Architecture. The two-storey, double-wide construction offers two studios, storage and a gallery – all with superb natural lighting throughout the interior. Two shipping containers sit above ground, their floors mostly removed to reveal the foundation below. While it may not sound like the most elegant of spaces, take a look at the photos below and see how clean lines and stark walls can add a touch of class to even the most banal of beginnings.

Sign me up! Next time a find a spare $60,000 (the budget Maziar Behrooz had to work with), I’ll know where to invest it… for now I’ll just look and sigh a little.
