Nogry House Extension

Architecture

Simple yet beautiful.  Christophe Nogry’s house extension in the suburb of Nantes was constructed using one 40-foot and one 20-foot shipping containers.

Due to the narrowness of the site, shipping container was a perfect solution for the addition.  To cope with shipping container proportion, a storage wall system was designed for one side while the connecting bridge enlarge the living areas makes it a more comfortable living area.

The second floor contains a new master bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

  1. I am interested in the choice of materials for the walls and ceilings. Is this concrete? wonderboard panels? I like it, and I also like to see alternatives to standard dry wall and paint.
