Enter a cheerful, family-friendly container home full of unique touches

A bit of reshaping can go a long way. As their family grew in size, the owners of this container home in San Marcos, Texas, decided they needed an upgrade. With the help of A.Gruppo Architects, the house was given an additional 950 square feet (88.3 sq. m) and a nice makeover for the existing 400 square feet (37.2 m) worth of space.
The project, completed in 2011, is a sleek composition that pays a great deal of attention to its spatial confinements. Intrigued? Then come take a closer look.

This wholesome bedroom, destined for a cheery tot, is among the house's newest additions. According to A.Gruppo Architects, this room's windows were meticulously placed to create the illusion of a larger space.
White walls ensure this area is always bright and welcoming, and the shelves endow this area with a special homey touch.
Delicate and practical, a set of pink footstools by the bathroom vanity will help the little ones wash up in the morning.
The narrow hallway that leads downstairs comes with a delightful artistic flair, as well as lush wooden floors.
Interior lighting is the standout feature in the library. The stairs were constructed to allow the natural light from above to be captured below.
