Container Architecture with dion seminara architecture

Turning shipping containers into homes is a great way to save money on traditional construction costs whilst still getting a great outcome.

Shipping container conversions have become very popular in Australia but up until now there have only been limited designs to choose from. None of which could ever truly meet your lifestyle needs.

But dion seminara architecture’s shipping container design service has changed all that. Now thanks to our new container design service it’s possible to get all of the advantages that shipping container homes offer, without compromising on comfort and your own individual needs.

Through our architectural design service, we can create a custom designed shipping container home that suits your specific needs, offering you a level of comfort that other designs simply can’t match.

When you choose dion seminara architecture’s container architecture design service you benefit from more than 30 years of architect experience in residential and small space design.  Our shipping container architecture designs are tailored to your specific needs and are created in such a way that in many cases you would never know they had once been shipping containers.

By obtaining architect advice from dion seminara architecture you receive a host of benefits including:

  • A full architectural consultation process to identify your needs
  • Shipping container home design solutions
  • Individual tailored container designs based on your requirements
  • Eco and sustainable solutions
  • Luxury additions and appointments
  • Indoor-outdoor lifestyle outcomes
  • Interior design

Investment and secondary dwelling opportunities

Of course it’s not just personal accommodation that makes shipping container homes so popular.  They are also perfect for investors looking at positive investment outcomes and great cash-flow opportunities.

Container conversions lend themselves to a wide range of accommodation types including:

  • Granny flats
  • Dual occupancy properties
  • Holiday homes and cabins
  • Mining & resources accommodation
  • Remote rural accommodation
  • Wineries and bed & breakfast guesthouses
  • Resort and eco-resort
  • Farm and hobby farm accommodation
  • Portable offices

There is virtually no limit on the type of dwelling shipping containers can be used for.  And because much of the work can be done off-site before the containers are delivered, you can save even further time and expense, particularly in the case of remote locations around Australia. In fact, many small projects are able to be designed, constructed and on-site in under 4 months!

So if you’ve got a block of land and you’re looking for an affordable cost, quality housing option, or perhaps you want to expand your investment portfolio, you should contact us today to discuss our container architecture design service.
