DC's First Shipping Container Apartments Are Now Up In Brookland




Talk about reduce, reuse, recycle. A recently completed residential apartment building in Brookland is made completely out of shipping containers stacked together. This is the first residential project of its kind for D.C. The project was designed by DC-based architect Travis Price for clients Matthew Grave and Sean Joiner, who replaced a single-family home on the lot with the shipping container housing. Neighbors had mixed feelings about the project, and one neighbor even took to the a local neighborhood newsletter to say the "I suspect that a few decades of wear will quickly turn them into slums." Similarly to the structure of the complex, the interiors are also made out of recycled materials with floors made from welded metal and wide-plank. The four-unit complex is located at 3305 7th Street NE.
