When artist and entrepreneur Stacy Hill asked the Texan architect Jim Poteet to transform an old shipping container into a guest house and a playhouse when unoccupied, Poteet, who never had the experience with containers before taking on the challenge? And the result turned out to be a great one. Now located in San Antonio, Texas, behind Hill’s renovated warehouse house, the 40 feet shipping container guest house serves as one of the fresh eco-conscious structures there is.

The guest house stands out among the greenery on what used to be an industrial area with its original blue color and lots and lots of plants put on the top of it to help with keeping down the temperature inside the guest house. Poteet Architects has long been known for the adaptive reuse of the local existing buildings and Jim Poteet had used the same sensitivity to maintain the essence of the container and turn it into a habitable as well as energy efficient structure.

Poteet stated that the idea was not to change the old shipping container into something it was not. This was partly the reason he maintained the basic blue color of the container and gave the building’s additions the same paint color. Bamboo plywood was used for the walls and the floor as well as the sink face in the corner to give an earthy touch to it. A welder was used to make the large opening at the front of the building.

An electric composting toilet was used for the bathroom. All water from the building’s sink and shower are collected in a water tank and used to water the roof garden which also helps with the temperature. The recycled vinyl material is used for the deck, keeping it cool ever under Texan heat. Insulators are important for such material of container so Poteet made sure that the building had lots.
