Designed by one of America’s leading cargotecture proponents, this modern shipping container home in New Jersey is seeking a new buyer.

The home exterior was recently sandblasted and painted with a ship-grade, high-gloss industrial paint.

Suburban New Jersey may seem an unlikely place for shipping containers, yet architect Adam Kalkin has designed and built a cargotecture home that looks surprisingly compatible with its leafy surroundings.

Completed in 2008, the 4,000-square-foot home was constructed from nine 40-foot-long shipping containers that were split into two wings and connected by a large bluestone courtyard, as well as an exterior steel-and-wood bridge on the second floor.

A massive steel pivot door marks the entrance.

Adam originally designed the four-bedroom, three-bath property as a demonstration project for his “Quik House” initiative—prefab kit homes built from upcycled shipping containers.
