adam kalkin created this shipping container that opens up into an entire house. the structure is operated with a hydraulic system, that transforms from a rectangular shipping container to a full apartment at the touch of a button. the open structure contains six rooms spread across the container’s floor and walls.  on one wall there is a double bed and bathroom complete with a full size bathtub. in the middle, there is a kitchenette and dinning table complete with a chandelier overhead. To complete the home, the doors of the container are lined with a library full of books. on the other wall there is a living area with a sofa and side tables. the home was originally exhibited at art basel miami in 2005. the home ‘clearly demonstrates how the technologies of wider industry can be used to create dynamic architectural conceits’.
