DC has its first residential complex made up of shipping containers.
Now we can take a look inside. The apartments’ interiors are very sparse, and as builders Sean Joiner and Matthew Grace told the Washington Business Journal, it appears that the apartments were made out of recycled materials. The floors are a mixture of welded metal and wide-plank. Corrugated plastic is used on the building’s exterior.
The interior and exterior are most noticeable for the huge windows built into the sides of the containers. Pieces of the container form shutters, and a few of these large windows lead out onto balconies in the back of the building.
