This beautiful shipping container sunset observatory is raised in the harbor of Songdo New City in Incheon, South Korea. Composed of five shipping containers, this “OceanScope” stands beautifully with three different angles of 10, 30 and 50 degrees. Since the container shape is of cubical design, any attempt to flex the shape to make it visually flow and blend with the nature is usually difficult. So the AnL Studio wanted to focus on the designing of the container itself and to show others how the stiff steel building blocks could be attractive as well. These recycled shipping containers were planted firmly on solid concrete foundation and were installed with metal stairs. The beach visitor can walk inside and see three distinct views in every container with different angle. The cuts along the walls serve as viewing windows. There, the interior features 10’ slope and 30’ metal stair to the top. There are also 50’ mirror surface / seat and screen / projection. The interior itself is finished with wood board finish.
This beautiful cliff prefab house in New Zealand is built from recycled container boxes. Recycling is now necessary in saving our world. So, any attempts should be valued as good contribution for our planet. These container boxes could be wasted if the Industrial Design lecture at Victoria University in Wellington Ross Stevens did not construct it. Three container were then stacked together to form a three level house. With dark coloring, this house is definitely stands out from its environment. The interesting part of the interior design is the designer preserves the original cliff inside the house next to the chair. This cliff seems have been cut but aesthetically. But this cliff just looks as if it is in original form. The other parts of the house are simple but beautiful. The modern kitchen is beautifully combined with simple furniture in the dining room nearby. There are dining table with built-in wooden benches and 2 armchairs. This kitchen / dining room is gray, calm and looks so relaxing.
