Container Homes:

After years of traveling around the world, the owner wanted a place or home, that was inspired by all of the elements that have influenced her life and work. The 1,184-square-foot container home, designed by Spray Architecture and Gabrielle Vella-Boucaud, was built on a serene hillside.

It was dubbed Un Dernier Voyage – “a final journey” in French. An artistic soul finds liberty in different aspects of house design. Its interiors boast a flexible floor plan and invite natural light deep inside.
