The Container Series

The Container Series is a series of homes designed to be the highest house on the side of the mountain, the last house at the far end of the country road, the furthest house into the forest, the closest house to the sea and most importantly the warmest house in the storm.
This series of homes can be placed anywhere with road access.

Our container homes not only look amazing, they also encompass the amazing strength and performance Shape is known for delivering. Our container homes are also ideal for earthquake zones, damaged land and sea spray zones.

The structure is built from new modified shipping containers, and then coated in our high performing paint system which leaves the structure untouched in the most corrosive of zones.

The Habitat is built to near completion, then divided into 6m x 2.4m modules and transported on the back of flat deck trucks to the final location and lifted into place.
