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.
