CARGO HOUSE

 

The owner of this building is a professional sculptor and musician who produces musical percussion and stringed instruments from found objects. This building, which will house his home, workshop, and practice and performance space, as well as two rental units, combines a concrete box and reused cargo containers. The building form suggests a concrete ruin with cargo containers protruding from it — representing the idea of creating something new from something old.
