An Unlikely Spot

Interior designer Dhara Kabaria has taken upcycling to another level – she recently redid an entire shipping container and turned it into a beautiful and airy apartment. The 320 square feet abode is powered by solar energy and took 7 weeks to build. And the small area is decorated with recycled materials.

Her biggest challenge was keeping the metal home from heating up during the summer months. The bathroom was also a problem because the pipes couldn’t be concealed as they normally would be in a home. Kabaria ended up placing a matching corrugated metal over the pipes to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Eventually Kabaria would like to expand out these kinds of designs to reach more people in her impoverished home country of India. Check it out:
