As a building block, shipping containers are both durable and versatile—convert one into a tiny backyard office, or stack and arrange them to create a big, bold residence. In addition to saving on construction costs, upcycling an old container can be an eco-friendly alternative to building from the ground up. In the link in bio, we’re sharing our essential guide to shipping container home design. From preliminary guides to to exemplary floor plans, these resources will inspire your own sweet home shipping container.

Designed as a vacation home for a young family, this surprisingly airy dwelling is made of massive concrete slabs. Located just north of São Paulo, Brazil, the concrete-metal-and-glass home celebrates its expansive natural vistas. Architecture studio @reinachmendonca stacked two linear volumes upon each other, then incorporated floor-to-ceiling glass panels throughout to ensure every space enjoyed the same stunning view. Tour the tropical home in the link in bio.

Lone and Chris McCourt are the latest residents of a “hotel particulier,” or townhouse, in Uzès, France, that dates to the time of the Crusades. The limestone structure reputedly once belonged to a cardinal. But when the McCourts, self-described hardcore modernists, purchased it five years ago, it was being used as a lawyer’s office and lacked such basic necessities as a kitchen. “It immediately felt right, although it was in terrible interior condition,” explains Chris. Since then, the London-based couple, he a bespoke furniture maker and she a textile designer, have painstakingly brought the Medieval building into the 21st century. To see how the two modernists made their home in a Medieval townhouse, head to the link in bio to try Dwell+ today..

Prefabricated architecture dates back to the 16th century—but it wasn’t until after World War II that factory-built homes took off in popularity in the United States. From the Eames House to a progressive modular home by Jean Prouvé, we rounded up five midcentury prefabs that were way ahead of their time—and continue to inspire architects and builders today. Take a look at the five most game-changing prefab homes in the link in bio.

When @katie_mossman purchased this Brooklyn home in 2014, the property—once a sea captain’s residence in the 1850s—was largely dilapidated, with a dark and outdated interior. Mossman envisioned a brighter space that allowed for more indoor/outdoor living—a home that “felt like California,” she explains. It took almost five years to complete the renovation, but the results are seriously swoon-worthy. Profiled by @archdigest earlier this year, the revitalized Greenpoint duplex is now for sale. Peek inside in the link in bio.

Despite a hostile environment, this translucent shed in Australia allows one couple to keep a home, garden, and cooking school under one roof. Ronnen Goren and Trace Streeter bought 20 acres in central Victoria with the aim of creating a rural enclave where they could farm, garden, and host visitors. “From the outset it was clear: Goren and Streeter did not want a scheme for themselves; they needed a scheme that would invite, in a participatory way, the involvement of others,” says architect Timothy Hill of @partnershill. However, with extreme climates, threats from wildlife, and less-than-hospitable growing conditions, the land was unfavorable for the couple’s goals. Hill’s solution was to collect the diverse site functions under a single roof. As a result, being in @dlonghouse is “mellow and calming whatever the weather. The experience of the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts,” says the firm. Take the complete tour when you try Dwell+ in the link in bio.

Built on a budget of $120,000, this prefab home brings unexpected contemporary design to a rural township. Eager to leave Taipei behind for a quieter life in the mountains, a retired Taiwanese couple took the recommendation of their son-in-law and hired Spanish architect Urdaneta Zeberio of @uzarchitecture to realize their vision of an affordable forever home in Nanzhuang, two hours north of Taichung. Navigating tricky terrain and a tight budget, Zeberio opted for a simplified, serene approach. “I made this project thinking of how I would like to live,” says Zeberio. “Most of the time, it is not about the size, the budget, or the quality of the materials, but about how peaceful the space can become.” Tour the prefab dream home in the link in bio.

Boasting a bold brass facade, this striking family home in Amsterdam embraces contemporary design with a sustainable approach. Located in the rapidly developing Ijburg neighborhood, the Brass House stands apart from its traditional brick-clad neighbors with its modern, sculptural form. Local practice MOPET architecten covered both the front and back of the home in angular brass, creating an eye-catching geometric exterior. “Brass is a 100-percent recycled product, an alloy of copper and zinc from old church-roofs, money, and musical instruments,” explains the firm. “The material doesn’t lose its value, and gets a beautiful patina in time. We think it’s one of the few materials that ages nicely or even becomes more beautiful.” Tour the dazzling home in the link in bio.

Set on a forested lot on Vancouver Island, this angular cabin is perfectly poised to soak up breathtaking vistas. The two-bedroom home, set back from the water in the district of Sooke, captures views of everything the land has to offer: the ocean, the forest, and the mountains. "Each space has a different view," says architect Javier Campos of @campos_studio. "Even though the house is very small, when you move from space to space, you feel that you are in a different area of the forest." Before building, Campos and his team spent ample time on-site to fully understand the setting, and to better appreciate Sooke’s motto of “Where the rainforest meets the sea.” As a result, the sculptural retreat follows the contour of the land and feels one with the surrounding landscape. Tour the stunning cabin in the link in bio.

Cara Frey and Jennifer Warner lived in the same bungalow in Portland, Oregon, for close to 14 years, and they spent almost every spare minute working on some part of it. “My wife and I did everything we could, even painted it black ahead of the trend curve,” says Cara, half joking. Not that they minded—quite the opposite. The women, both “boring” lawyers, according to Cara, find home improvement a good way to let loose pent-up creative energy. But when there was nothing left to update or change, a move seemed inevitable.
In 2013, they fell in love with a modest but charming 1920s house within walking distance of their bungalow. The dwelling was dramatically sited, with great views of the city’s southwest hills and downtown. But according to Michael Leckie of @leckiestudio, the Vancouver–based firm they eventually hired, “It was the dumpiest house on the block.” After debating whether to renovate or rip up the wobbly old house, the family opted to start fresh and unlock the site’s full potential. Leckie replaced the house with a simple, modern design, using a cedar-clad square box that skews into a rhombus form. Inside, a material palette of white oak, drywall, and blackened steel evokes Dieter Rams’ “Less but better” ideology. Peek inside when you try Dwell+ in the link in bio.
