When MB Architecture‘s client requested an art studio near her Amagansett home, she had three requirements–a roughly 900-square foot space, a simple structure that was still “inviting and reflective,” and a limited budget. To achieve these goals, the firm decided to use two recycled shipping containers, about $2,500 each.

The 9’-6” x 40’-8″ shipping containers were perched over a foundation wall/cellar, which allowed the architects to create a bi-level space with a double-height ceiling. A wide staircase, which itself functions as a “transitional space for viewing artwork,” connects the painting studio on the lower level to a more private work/sitting area on the top.

As for the exterior, MB painted the containers a dark charcoal that matches the main house and also blends with the wooded site.
