Squirrel Park makes innovative use of modified shipping containers

Responding in a sensitive and sustainable way to Oklahoma City’s imperative to increase density in existing residential neighbourhoods, Squirrel Park makes innovative use of modified shipping containers to create four single-family homes. Each offers around 1400 square feet of living space, its conventional interior layout contrasting with the modern, industrial exterior aesthetic.

The design by AHMM reinterprets the components of a traditional neighbourhood street on a smaller scale, encouraging outdoor living and interaction.

The unique nature of the site as a park-like environment is enhanced through retention of existing mature trees, provision of shared outdoor spaces, new planting, and the addition of green roofs to assist energy efficiency and biodiversity.
