If you are interested in viewing many of the worlds container ships - this is the site for you. Very interesting pictures and lots of them.
►Welcome to my ocean ships page. On this page I would like to show some of my ship pictures as well as special reports of special events like maiden voyages or other events. Most of my pictures were taken in German ports, at the river Elbe at the river Scheldt and in the port of Rotterdam. It is possible to get some of my pictures as paper prints as well as digital photos in a higher resolution. On this page most of the pictures have a size of 800 pixel width for a faster navigation. Enjoy viewing my pictures! Best regards, Christian Costa, webmaster of www.oceanships.de.◄
TWOTIMESTWENTYFEET This is a German based Shipping Container design business and their website consists mostly of pictures of their projects completed and projects on the board. So it seems to offer some fresh material, at least in the form of pictures anyway. I like the "Booking Office" link the best which shows some completed projects. Because these people are still working on this website (it's a work in progress), one big problem is the mixture of their boat making business with their shipping container projects and it is hard to locate and separate out the relevant material - at least it is for me. You will have to visit their "Bootsmanufaktur" page to view other very nice pictures of some completed projects. Look for the word "Container" or "Containerarchitekur" for more pictures.
►TwoTimesTwentyFeet is a cooperation of the art department berlin gmbh & Bootsmanufaktur. We design and manufacture container buildings for temporary and permanent use. In cooperation with Berlin Art department the containers were removed in style and built in just three days at the fairgrounds on the disused airport Tempelhof. There were containers with 10 work stations and a large meeting room to the organizers as a booking office. After the show containers were brought to the RAW terrain in Friedrichshain and quickly turned into a night club. The photos show the gutting, the steel works, the construction, interior and exhibition design. But other applications in architecture, house or office building are possible. We can use 20-foot and 40-foot containers, used or new, according to customer requirements.◄
CONEX VEGETABLE STAND I ran across this article about small locally grown produce in the country of Cuba while searching for something else and thought it would be a good addition to Conex Connection. This is a good example of how someone could use shipping containers for selling locally grown produce, something which in my opinion needs to be done a lot more in the US. Actually, some of you who are unemployed might consider small time farming or container farming and selling produce to make some extra cash, maybe at a local farmers market, and don't get any ideas about growing pot, i'm talking about potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, kale, lettuce, squash, onions, radish & broccoli.
►Posted April 2, 2003: There is much poverty in Cuba, for sure, but there are also signs of promise that kept my eyes glued to the oncoming landscape outside the bus. For amid the substantial ruins of a society that has faced tremendous adversity, there is agriculture—agriculture everywhere—agriculture that the high priests of corporate agribusiness have told us can never be possible in our own country . . . To put it bluntly, I think most if not all of us on the trip were stunned to find out how central the concept of sustainable agriculture has become in Cuban society, and likely were equally stunned afterward in returning to face the reality of our situation in this country (USA). It is worth noting, however, that not all of Cuba's success in this regard has been by design; historical consequence has played a significant role . . .◄
SHIPPING CONTAINER AS AN UNDERGROUND SHELTER I have a great interest in underground building or underground small rooms and this video at least gives you some idea of what is involved with using a shipping container as an underground room. My interest in underground building is not for nuclear bomb protection, but as a means to escape the high temperatures being experienced in many places on the earth, like even Texas . . . Especially West Texas. Underground living in these very hot areas is really the solution to low cost temperature control. It is my understanding that at depth's of only 6 to 10 feet underground, the earth's temperature stabilizes at around a comfortable 54° to a high of 74° (approximately) regardless of the top side surface temperature which would create ideal sleeping conditions or just a place to cool off without using air conditioning. But of course the safety factor is a big issue and one that must be resolved first. Some ground areas are safe to dig without using any support system, while others require some level of a support system.
►Final attempt to record building of an underground shelter using a 20ft. shipping container. For those wondering why I didn't simply pile dirt over it without pouring a concrete cap first . . . These containers are mostly sheet metal. Heavy duty as it is, the roof and sides will push inwards from the weight. Eventually the metal will rust through and you'll be buried alive. My way will insure it is still there a few hundred years from now. Problem is, you'd better keep an eye on your sump pump. If it goes bad or loses power, you'll go in one day and find it the whole thing flooded. A surface alarm letting you know the water level is above where it should be isn't a bad idea. Putting the sump pump on a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) is also a good thing.◄

PORT OF LOS ANGELES
I did not realize the Port of Los Angeles was the main US port of entry for products coming from overseas. If you would like to view some pictures of the port, click on the "NEWSROOM" tab then scroll down to Photo Gallery and click.
►Welcome to the Port of Los Angeles website, and thank you for your interest in "America's Port".

This is a great addition to this website because these people have a wide spectrum of design. They specialize in affordable Backyard Studios, Residences and most any structure which can be built using Shipping Containers. Nice website - lots of pictures.
►IC Green is the next breakthrough in housing and sustainable green structures. Designed to be architecturally pleasing yet affordable, IC Green manufactures and pre-assembles a wide-range of structures from small backyard cabanas and office space to expansive residences.
IC Green combines the skills and design excellence from our in-house architects and builders to deliver you a fully engineered, affordable and high-quality product that exceeds most finishes of many high-end custom homes. The Designs for our Container Houses follow the principles of modularity with a high degree of flexibility within the system. This means that any of our houses can be easily modified and even regrouped if so desired. Our homes are made from used shipping containers which are not only structurally strong, highly resistant and easy to transport, but which also have an inherent aesthetic quality once modified to function as modern dwellings. The structural rigidity in the metal frame and corrugation of the shipping container equal more than standard timber and steel construction. This factor leads to ease in stacking and joining in many possible configurations. The optimized frame construction allows for more square footage within the same footprint as a standard timber construction, making it particularly successful for any small and large scale housing project. Construction time from start to finish is significantly reduced through prefabrication of about 80% of the structure. Once a plan has been selected, our factory prepares the unit by cutting for windows, doors or removing sides. Windows, flooring, and other finish materials are applied easily through use of standard dimensions and pre-assembled framing.◄
Featured here is a very clever business idea using shipping containers as the basis for conversion into a portable restaurant. It is my understanding these units are for sale to anyone interested in a portable custom designed restaurant setup.
►Whether it is lobster in Montreal, cupcakes in London, pizza in Chicago, sushi in Tokyo, sausages in Geneva... the MUVBOX is only limited by the imagination. The business is positioned to sell self-contained restaurant units made to order for the prospective restaurateur/operator's gourmet menu offering. The "ready to ship" MUVBOXes are easily transportable by rail, road or sea. MUVBOX was designed to be environmentally-friendly. Recyclable and sustainable materials, solar power, local products and eco-friendly efficiencies, all coupled with a healthy culinary menu are key ingredients of the MUVBOX brand. The MUVBOX mission is to create a network of unique mobile restaurants based on the slickly designed recycled steel shipping containers. The proposition is straightforward: Keep it Simple, Delicious and Eco friendly. It is designed to create fun experiences worth sharing with others. The MUVBOX concept is based on offering fresh and reasonably priced local delicacies with an international audience in mind. The state-of-the-art kitchen is designed to produce simple culinary treats from fancy chips to pizzas to paninis to soups and beyond. At the present time, the MUVBOX is available for purchase by companies in the restaurant and catering sector. Each MUVBOX is custom tailored to the buyer's needs. The kitchen design and complete configuration including selection of appliances, heating ventilation, etc is based on the menu proposed. It will be made available for leasing in the future. Franchises are not available.◄
This is something you want to watch - keep your eye on. If this concept flies it could mean big money for someone. Because this is a new type of shipping container which might have plenty of uses for holding most kinds of cargo. May not be good for heavy machinery, but good for most manufactured goods. Cargoshell is manufactured from composites and therefore much lighter than a steel container. Plus it folds down allowing the transportation of multiple units on a truck or rail car. The volume of a folded Cargoshell is ¼ of the original volume of the traditional steel container. Composite is a low maintenance material - It doesn't corrode and is easy to clean. The term "Composite" consists of material made from a fiber reinforced plastic.
►Cargoshell is a new concept for containers. It provides, maintaining the successful qualities of the current container, a number of crucial innovations. Of higher interest is the substantial CO2-reduction that can be achieved by replacing the current containers by Cargoshell worldwide. This reduction of CO2 does not lead to higher costs, on the contrary. Savings in weight and space reduce the operational costs, thus making the Cargoshell an attractive economic concept. By monitoring the cargo compartment during transport, better quality control of the cargo is guaranteed. And, last but not least, the introduction of Cargoshell on a wide scale will also improve the safety at sea because of the adequate track & tracing-system possibilities Cargoshell has to offer. All innovations are protected through international patents.◄
AADBUILD This high quality firm is based in Australia. By the looks on their website, they design and build a lot of very large and beautiful homes. But they also build these small shipping container cabins for those who like their design and quality. Interesting thing about their start into the container conversion business: "Shipping container transformation: We came across this idea inadvertently and the response has been outstanding! Almost 85% recycled, cheap to buy and cheap to run.
►We built this for our customers so they could stay on site while we build their homes. We now have more customers that just want the container . . . We used up to 85% recycled material, led light globes, a new air transfer system, low e glass, double insulation and more. Relax in your beautiful home and have it designed and built by the best in the business. Aadbuild can have your new home or extension/renovation drawn in 3D so you can walk through your house before you sign a building contract. Enjoy the luxury of having pre-scheduled projects in times that will amaze you. Relax and watch the professionals get the job done on time, on budget the first time. About the many Container Conversion Uses . . . granny flat, sewing room, teenage retreat, underground fire shelter, bar, kids room, home office, gym, storage room, laundry, cinema room, music room, cabana, fire shelter: We could have used these to save lives in the Victorian bush fires. The uses for our new container project is limitless. The advantage of the container is its strength. One container could hold over 200 tons stacked on top. Not that I recommend doing this to your granny flat, but it is possible. The new dwellings will retail for around $35k for each expandable module. The finishes and fit outs can be customized to suit you.◄
LEED CABINS This business has two locations: One on the East coast and one on the West Coast. They like to build small cabins using shipping containers. Take a look at these pictures of their alterations:

BRIGHT&LIGHT CONTAINERThis website might be a Thailand based business. There are some good pictures of a few containers and modifications. There are some English words here and there throughout the website. But 99% of the website is in the Thai language. I guess it's Thai. It appears they may do container modifications in Thailand as a part of their business.

FABPREFAB CONTAINER BAY This here is a pretty neat website displaying many forms of use. I do not think it has been updated for a long time (since 2006), but it is still a good resource for those of you looking for some building ideas. Also, look for the link which takes you to sources for containers (Container Bay).
"There is growing interest in the use of shipping containers as the basis for habitable structures. These "icons of globalization" are relatively inexpensive, structurally sound and in abundant supply. Although, in raw form, containers are dark windowless boxes (which might place them at odds with some of the tenets of modernist design...) they can be highly customizable modular elements of a larger structure."
QUIK HOUSE I'll tell you what Vern, click on this link and ye shall be permanently blinded by the red light.
►The Quik House is a prefabricated kit house designed by Adam Kalkin from recycled shipping containers. It has three bedrooms and two and one-half baths in its 2,000 square foot plan. The shell assembles within one day at your site, you will have a fully enclosed building. From start to finish, it should take no longer than three months to complete your house. The Quik House can be delivered anywhere in the US ten weeks from the time of your order. During that time, we recommend that you obtain your building permits and build the foundation. From the time of your order to the day you move in should be less six months.◄
CONTAINER4HOME From concept to plan. What you need to design and build a very cool home.
►Early designers and builders of residential ISBU projects used little more than paint to disguise the humble origins of their corrugated steel boxes, while chanting a "form follows function" mantra, which extolled the "beauty" of cost savings and industrial design. But industrial design isn't for everyone. Therefore, many people have set out to modify the ISBU process to create a more traditional home, one with a conventional peaked roof and a stucco exterior for example. Container4Home has taken a different approach. Container4Homes grew out of a belief that the cost and construction practicality of the simple cargo container must eventually be wed to a new and unique persona based on an appearance, cost and practicality that transcends the traditional home if ISBU construction is ever to gain any traction in the mass market. We set out to accomplish this by utilizing state of the art commercial building materials to create a minimalist exterior with the sleek look of the classic case study homes of the mid 20th century. A gallery like interior with pleasant, simple esthetics that allows easy adaptation to reflection the owner's personality in the fixtures and materials chosen to finish the project gives a uniquely modern touch. These exterior and interior details are what make a Container4Home different from other ISBU projects.◄

PUSH BUTTON HOUSE
I think this is a famous coffee place similar to Starbucks. This "Push Button House" is also quite famous. Go to "Art" then "Project" then "Push Button House". Picture on the right was borrowed from LikeCool.com.
►IT'S THE ULTIMATE "OPEN HOUSE": illy Push Button House. illy collaborated with artist/architect Adam Kalkin to create a dramatic work of living art - the illy Push Button House, a five-room home with a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room and library constructed within a standard industrial shipping container. The home, which transforms at the push of a button, is created from recycled and recyclable materials and is the physical representation of illy's dedication to sustainability, art and innovation. Guests to Push Button House had the opportunity to sample the world's finest coffee using illy's new iperEspresso system, participate in coffee classes, view dance and performance art and listen to caffè conversations. Push Button House debuted at the esteemed Venice Biennale in June 2007. In December 2007, Push Button House was exhibited in New York City where it welcomed holiday shoppers at the Time Warner Center. As part of the New York Wine & Food Festival, Push Button House again took center stage in the Meatpacking District in October 2008. Both pragmatic and environmentally friendly, illy Push Button House is created from recycled and recyclable materials and embodies illy's message of sustainability and its connection to beauty through art and design. From the tin to the taste buds, illy relentlessly strives to turn the coffee drinking experience into one that is also unique, innovative and artful—and the illy Push Button House demonstrates the creative efforts illy employs to reinforce this vision.◄

►A home made of steel cargo containers has taken shape in the Brookside area of Kansas City. The house at 60th and Charlotte streets has 2,600 square feet. The 40-by-8 foot cargo containers are similar to the ones you would see on trains and tractor-trailers, except the ones for the house are taller (highcube). Homeowner Debbie Glassberg is using all kinds of green building materials. Rooftop gardens will produce vegetables while insulating. Steve Mann is part of a grass-roots organization trying to turn yards into a sustainable landscape of plants. Mann is working on Glassberg's front yard. "What we're going to do is put a cover crop on the soil to protect it, stop erosion, and stop weeds from growing," Mann said. Last winter, welders started piecing together the puzzle of steel and concrete made out of cargo containers from China. "It's so unique. You don't ever get to work on anything so crazy and different," architect Christina Assmann said. Glassberg said she is hoping the prototype will lead to a home that could one day help people without a roof over their heads. "I hope to be able to work with FEMA, HUD, and the Salvation Army," Glassberg said. Glassberg said she envisions smaller versions of the home that could be used for housing hurricane victims, homeless people and even college students in dormitories.◄
