architecture firm river & rain has repurposed parts of four shipping containers into escape den, a three-story residence in a quiet, secluded suburb of dhaka, bangladesh. comprised of a steel frame skeleton and the recycled containers, the house is completed with a series of large openings, terraces, and plenty of outdoor space that attribute a lightweight, refined feel to its otherwise bulky appearance.

evoking a rustic romanticism, river &rain‘s house stands solitary on a large piece of land in dhaka’s bashundhara residential area. the local architecture studio has developed the design with large openings and reflective surfaces, which allow the interior to make the most of the morning light and emit a dim glow at night.

escape den contains the kitchen and dinning area on the ground floor, while the living room and bedrooms are situated on the two upper levels. the three containers are connected via a set of stairs which also connects the house’s various decks and terraces.
