This unique style of design is built partially or entirely from one or many of the estimated two million empty, recycled ISO shipping containers that sit idle at any given time. Making use of these otherwise vacant cargo containers is an environmentally-friendly way to create an original and inviting residential space.


Local professional interior designers from the Interior Design Association of WNY have re-imagined how a Buffalo city lot could be transformed by two distinct cargo containers: a 8'X40' container and a 8'X20' container. With the help of Sound & Theater, these containers will be given a high-tech twist. The overhauled cargo containers will host invisible speakers and none of the electronics will be exposed inside the display either - you'll have to see it to believe it!

The Buffalo Home Show continues at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center March 13-15, 2015.
