Sydney is renowned for its incredible beaches. What you may not be aware of, though, is that within one of them hides a charming container home treasure.
Coogee Beach’s sun-kissed coastlines welcome its visitors with a rustic holiday retreat. Engineered by the architectural geniuses at Takt Studio, the aptly-named Copper House is set to amaze us with its design, construction, and laid-back homey vibes.
You just need to dip into the Aussie shores to experience it first-hand.
Built in 2011, this cozy hillside container home gives you just the right amount of privacy with fences all around.
Copper cladding was chosen for the exteriors to counteract the harsh salt residue that lingers in the humid sea breeze. What’s fascinating about the Copper House’s construction is that it is divvied up into three distinct sections. This was very much a life-imitates-art decision, as the architectural firm had to be quite dexterous about building their container home around tight and steep space confinements.
As we make our way up the narrow steps, you’ll be closely exposed to the siding’s glossy, hand-waxed finish.
According to Takt’s website, the Copper House was created to replace an old 1890’s cottage. The architects hope it will endure and remain just as long as its predecessor – if not longer.
Warm copper tones invite us to relax in this container home with gleaming interiors. Artist canvas walls and leather-clad door handles are among the list of adornments that give this dwelling its wholesome demeanor.
No Copper House would be complete without a modern lighting fixture that appeals to its theme.
An interesting blend of textures and tones give this kitchen a dash of modern flavor.
We like how this polished bathroom’s glass shower door creates a 3-D optical illusion of sorts. It’s almost as if you could walk right through it!
Who would have thought to use doorknobs as wall decoration? Pretty neat idea, if you ask us.
The narrow hallway leads us to our final destination for this container home tour.
That’s right, the bedroom! White painted walls and closets, along with the immaculately laid bedding, give this stylish room an angelic aura. So take everything in and let the soothing interiors reinvigorate your spirit.
As you can see, Takt modernized this coastal retreat and turned it into the perfect container home. The outside may appeal to low-key aesthetics, but the home’s inner beauty definitely shines through as it embraces us tightly in a wave of comfort.
