Container Home in Bangalore, India

Shipping containers are known for their robustness and superior design and build. It would be a mistake to not to use them for making portable/permanent homes. In the west, this has been in use for decades. India is fast catching up to this unique concept.

This is a comfortable and cozy living unit for one person.


The possibilities are enormous for customization, right from the entrance door to the shape and size of windows. In this unit, we have preferred to have plenty of ventilation owing to one big 6ft X 4ft window and two small windows(6ft X 1ft vertical window and 2ft diameter circular window). The door is the in-built container door. A sliding glass-cum-mosquito mesh door is provided as an additional door. All the windows have glass-cum-mosquito mesh panels.

A rather unique window

Container home is equipped with electrical wiring and water connection. A false ceiling is also provided for the lighting arrangements.

Side view

The interior includes an air conditioner, a refrigerator, a TV, a Bunk Bed, a Wardrobe, a Kitchen table(which doubles up as a storage unit), a Sink and couple of shelves. With all these furnishings, there is still plenty of room in the container for moving around and space for a small study table.

Home without a balcony is incomplete, well this container home, comes with one of its kind. Balcony adds enormous space to the container home. It is a perfect sit-out for evening tea and nothing beats the pleasure of lying idly in the hammock strung between the poles of the balcony. Apart from adding extra space, balcony acts as an insulator as well by not letting the sun hit the metal sheets directly, which considerably lowers the inside temperature during the summer time.


Due to structural soundness of container, the Container Home is Earthquake and Hurricane proof. Well, in Bangalore, there is no danger from either of them, but not every place is as lucky as Bengaluru.

To top it all, the whole setup is mobile. If one gets fed up of his surroundings, one can just shift the whole unit to place of his place of choice (off-course land doesn't come with container... :P)
