The shipping containers in the backyard of this property influenced the traditional architecture of the main house: the home is designed to impart the idea of stacked containers. Patrice Rios of Troo Designs summed up the living stage she sought to set: “My goal was to give the new home-owners a place to be at peace. The large windows bring in a ton of natural light, so the entire home and containers feel light and airy, peaceful and energetic.” Throughout the house a balance of reclaimed and industrial is achieved, along with the use of particularly interesting mix of textures like brick floors, wood tile walls, geometric glass tile, hand painted cement tile. Troo Designs typically uses steel in her projects and mixes that with reclaimed woods, cement tiles with punches of color, super white walls and brass cabinet hardware.
