Hideaway Litchfield: Shipping Container Cabin in Australia


Hideaway Litchfield: Shipping Container Cabin in Rakula, Northern Territory, Australia. In this video, we bring you Hideaway Litchfield: Shipping Container Cabin in Rakula, Northern Territory, Australia. Nestled among native Australian bushland, the once rusty shipping containers have been transformed from empty shells of steel into a spectacular two-storey cabin in Northern Territory. The container cabin, dubbed the “Hideaway Litchfield” is located just a short drive from the stunning waterfalls and attractions that Litchfield has to offer. It’s owned by a couple who were inspired to build their dream cabin after they saw a gap in the market for higher-end accommodation near Litchfield National Park. The cabin was designed and built by their son Simeon, aided by his brother and ‘master-welder’ Jordan, while their daughter Sarah takes care of all the marketing. The two story cabin is built from a single 40 foot container. The 40 foot container was cut in half at an angle to create two equal halves. One half sits on the ground floor as the living space. The second half is rolled on its side and stacked on top to form the bedroom module.

    The container rolled on its side to form a wooden headrest wall is quite IMAGINATIVE. What do you think?

    This is a good one!! Finally a shipping container house that makes sense. This could be cost effective if you have a suitable location for this design. 1 x 40ft cut in half. Thrifty. Ok so the fit out is where the real money is but this design negates the cost of foundations (where the big $$$ are in a conventional house/building). It still has a roof (more $$$$) but thats OK. By lifting the false roof the way they have it really really cuts down on heat getting into the building. This is overall a smart design!

    Of all the many videos your channel have posted, this is by far one of, if not the most outstanding use of a single container yet. It's aesthetics and proportions demand ones attention. It is also very respectful of the surroundings in size, positioning and colour scheme. There is a strong flow of decisive architectural awareness for natural light and its relationship to form.

    I love this specific design outlay and the look of it, the only thing i would do differently is to have the staircase to the room inside for safety reasons. In nature all alone this would do. Otherwise this is amazing……
