container studio: maziar behrooz architecture
Mazier Behrooz Architecture has just completed a 840sf art studio for a client in Amangansett NY. The reuse structure was assembled with two used shipping containers for the footprint. There was a stringent budget of $60,000 for this project.
Resourcefully the architects connected two 9’-6” x 40’ x 8’ shipping containers (cost: $2,500 each, delivered) perched over a 9’ foundation wall/cellar. By cutting 75% of the floor of the containers, the painting studio could take advantage of a high ceiling with a staircase leading to a sitting room for contemplation above.
