Shipping Container Design Project

I really enjoyed this week’s design activity. It has definitely been my favorite so far just because there is so much creative freedom and it’s hands on. Even though we were stuck with the dimensions of the shipping container,  AutoDesk Homestyler has so many capabilities to help you create the perfect design.

I have always loved watching HGTV since I was young so I felt like I was on an episode of Fixer Upper or Property Brothers when I was designing the classroom. I truly felt like a designer using the program.

When I think of communications I think of bright colors so I decided to go with my favorite color, blue, for the wall color and chose lots of windows for bright lighting. I didn’t get too far in class but here are some photos of what I got….

For my classroom I just used one shipping container with the dimensions given to us in class


I liked this door because it makes the room feel open, but I think it would need a shade – There are two doors on either side of the main wall


I thought these windows looked super cool. Again, they make the room feel open and the way it swings open is a neat concept. However, I should have gone for a lighter color to make the room feel less dark.



These chairs have a sleek modern look that I really liked. Again, more bright color by using white


Here is the view from the first door
