In the past few years, homeowners have transformed discarded shipping containers into compact houses, giving the storage units a second life. Contained has similar ideas; however, the Australian company wants to turn the 20-foot metal canisters into hotel rooms designed to be portable and packed up with ease.

Contained’s ‘living’ shipping containers have three different rooms inside: a bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a living room that includes a sink and bar working station, and a restroom. On the outside, residents can enjoy a deck with a fold-out awning. Contained designs unites with various layouts for homes, offices, dining and hospitality.
