    83 Freight

    Located in Nashville’s Wedgewood Houston neighborhood, 83 Freight provides unique, sustainable living options through an architecture of reflection, inspiration, and a sense of place and unity representative of this location. 173 shipping containers stacked, rotated, and offset form three buildings of 83 residential units of varying sizes: micro-studios, 1BR  and 2BR. The design intentionally expresses the raw materiality and simple utilitarian construct of the box inside and out.

    Exposing the weathered container exterior and the ISO identification codes and numbers exploits the remains of an environmentally imbalanced transport economy. Inside, exposed cambered fluted ceilings and original marine-grade plywood floors remind the user of the journeys their homes once took.
