Containers On Grand shipping container apartments by Starkjames LLC

In 2015 Starkjames LLC designed and built an apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona out of re-purposed shipping containers. The 16 ISO shipping containers were combined to create eight single bedroom apartments to be leased at market rate. Starkjames took the project from Schematic design, through permitting, and ultimately built the project with a budget comparable to conventional construction.

How 16 containers became 8 market-rate Phoenix apartments

On an old used car lot in Phoenix, architects Brian Stark and Wesley James placed 16 used shipping containers and turned them into 8 one-bedroom apartments. With the goal of creating market-rate rental units, the architects tried to work with the containers rather than altering them.

The containers are stacked as they would be on ships, using the cam-lock (twist lock) system to lock them in place two stories high. The container doors were left in place – welded open or shut in an alternating pattern – and serve as the main source of daylight. Only a few small windows are cut from the sides of the containers.
