Eight used shipping containers were repurposed in the building of this residence, designed by Patrick Partouche, in Lille, France.

This 2,500+ square-foot, three-bedroom residence, “designed and built by Progeco Dunkirk and architect Patrick Partouche,” in Lille, France, is constructed from eight decommissioned shipping containers.
