A workers cottage on a small block squeezed among Cremorne’s industrial and heritage dwellings, enhanced with required extra space in an unexpected way.

In response to the brief for a playful and innovative solution, six stacked shipping containers have been artfully manipulated and finely detailed.

The robust form references the gritty urban context while the interiors are designed to provide a calm haven, with flexible spaces adaptable to future needs.

Features include a double height void to create volume, ample light from floor to ceiling windows, and views across the characterful neighbourhood to the city skyline.
