A San Francisco loft with shipping container rooms lists for $5.55m

Stacked shipping containers sit inside this sprawling warehouse loft in San Francisco’s Fillmore District, juxtaposing industrial brick bones with rugged steel.

The 3,600 sq ft home belongs to a pair of art lovers who acquired the former Chinese laundry and tooth powder factory in 2007. The couple sandblasted the walls to reveal their board-formed concrete base and installed two cantilevering containers to maximise its column-free floorplan. They’ve been joined together by steel tubing and lashed to reinforced floor-joints to create a bedroom and home office.

On the market via Sotheby’s International Realty for $5.55m, the three-bedroom San Francisco property has Georgia hickory pecan plank flooring throughout as well as teak additions, including a custom, 11-ft-long bartop installed as part of the outdoor roof terrace.

The upstairs master bedroom suite also has its own deck and catamaran-style hammock and has views over lower Pacific Heights.
