SHIPPING CONTAINER RESIDENCE
   
In small space living, it is essential for areas to be multi-functional.  In this design, the bathroom dissapears  into a sleek walk-through entry when the door alongside the right-hand wall is "closed".  When "open", the area is closed off to the rest of the living area and becomes an open layout bathroom.

For additional functionality, the hammock chair rests on a track and can be moved from the office area to the living area to provide additional seating for guests.  The custom built-in sofa can be pulled out into a full size bed in one motion.
