An Austin Home With a Shipping Container

Patrice Rios, founder of interior design firm Troo Designs and custom shipping container business Sige&Honey, has combined her two loves in a new project in East Austin’s popular Mueller neighborhood.

Designed with local architect Mark Reynolds, the duplex creatively reuses shipping containers as home additions that can serve as guest bedrooms, offices, or art studios. “The intent was to give the homeowner a place where they felt inspired to live and work,” says Rios. With one unit already sold, Unit B, which mirrors the same floor plan with more feminine finishes, is being offered for $499,000.
