Todd Miller of ZieglerBuild surprised Australia’s architecture scene with a striking modern residence built from 31 shipping containers. Situated on 706 square metres in Graceville, a quiet suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, this unconventional home inspires a perpetual holiday feeling. The creative dwelling sprawls over three floors and features graffiti artwork and an impressive saltwater pool.

The transition between indoors and out was a key factor to consider when planning the design of this home, as highlighted by the numerous outdoor spaces featured on each level: “Seamless living areas span across the first floor, merging together without interruption. Cleverly designed to incorporate interesting angles, soaring voids and artistic features, these abundant living spaces are both practical and visually engaging. There are four bedrooms positioned over two levels, offering space and privacy to accommodate the growing family“. An array of different textures and finishes makes each interior dynamic and highly inviting, while extensive use of windows maximizes the visual connection with the nearby river and lush green surroundings.
