Irish Container Home

Designer: Patrick Bradley Architects

Category: Architecture

Year: Present-2020

Overview:  The architects employed a completely new approach for the area, designing the first modern shipping container construction in Northern Ireland. They used 4 containers in total to create two large cantilever forms. The exterior of the residence is covered with dark gray powder-coated expanded metal sheets (used for the upper level) and pre-rusted Corten steel (for the lower level).

The containers were insulated and waterproofed to prevent rust and they were used to create a structure that acts like a sculpture but also blends in with the surroundings. The building complements the forms and colors found in the local area.

The desire was to create a completely different atmosphere between the two levels. The layout takes advantage of the views over the woodland, the nearby river and the distant mountains. There are two entry points. One is an orange door on the ground level and the primary entrance is on the upper floor.

The upper level contains a galley and an open plan which houses the living and dining spaces and the kitchen. There are also two balconies to the South and West and a hidden door that leads into a bedroom. In total, the house has three bedrooms.

Overview: Retro Mountain is a modern take on the mad ski suits of the 80s and 90s. Many of the originals are chilly on the cold days, soggy on the wet days and fit like a brightly coloured bin bag (in the coolest possible way!) Retro Mountain has addressed all these issues to create a truly unique and striking yet technical and comfortable range of one piece skiwear.

Modern Lodge


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: One look at the interior of this mountain lodge and you’d never know that it’s a mere 538 square feet. Using material continuations, like the raw barn-wood floor that extends upwards to the wall at random sections, the space appears larger while maintaining that warm,cozy lodge vibe. Extra tall ceilings and lots of carefully placed windows add to this openness while providing perfect views of the contrasting wild terrain.
