Chinese architectural firm Tonghe Shanzhi Landscape Design has built a luxury hotel out of shipping containers.

Constructed using 35 shipping containers, the 'Xiang Xiang Pray House' contains 21 individual rooms—each housed in either a 20-foot or 40-foot container—in addition to a lobby, restaurant, event space and patio areas.

The five star hotel is an eco-friendly project that saved 60% of water and concrete during construction, and produces 30% less waste than a similarly-sized regular hotel—it is even painted in environmental water paint.

Normally used for low-cost, temporary structures in architecture, it is refreshing to see the shipping containers utilized for providing a luxury experience.

Would you pay luxury rates to stay in a hotel that is housed in shipping containers?
