Recycled shipping containers are cropping up all over the world as homes, work studios, vacation get-aways, hotels, and even restaurants. We’ve put together a collection of some of our favorites.

This 2-bedroom shipping container designed by [Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects](http://www.ccca.co.nz/projects/residential/coromandel-bach) is located in Coromandel, New Zealand. The home is open and spacious, while the bedrooms are enclosed and private. A large fireplace allows winter occupation and the open bathroom and movable bath allows the rituals of bathing to become a connection to nature.
