Homebase Inspiration House Containers

Homebase, a home improvements store chain in the UK, is launching a campaign that continues the creative idea of transforming unusual spaces. The Inspiration House ad shows a house made entirely from shipping containers. Fifty containers were used in the transformation of the ten story “home”, which includes three gardens, three kitchens, multiple living rooms, a bedroom and a bathroom.
