Comprised of one 40-foot and six 20-foot containers, the cabin features high-performance glazing that makes the surrounding landscape a natural extension of the interior. Two central containers lifted off the ground and offset to create a master suite provides shelter for the entry and a protected courtyard. The cabin’s ends are structurally reinforced and enclosed with additional site built walls.
