This desert getaway is made of shipping containers radiating in every direction

Shipping containers have been used to make interesting homes for some time, but this spiky white cluster of containers jutting out of the California desert will be quite a sight to behold upon completion.

Via Curbed:

Set to rise in the desert outside of Joshua Tree, California, this 2,153-square-foot house is the work of London designer James Whitaker, who created the spiky, sea anemone-reminiscent home for a film producer and his wife as the Los Angeles couple’s vacation home.

The rendered interiors are spare, and Dezeen notes that orange seating by Israeli designer Ron Arad are among the few furnishings included. (Whitaker once worked with Arad, so this inclusion is likely a nod at that.) We’ll be watching closely as work progresses, but you can take a look around at the renderings below.
