Shipping container buildings are often seen as “too hot” but if this is the case why are we seeing more and more appearing in Tropical climates?
Here we find an unusual shipping container office complex in Singapore. Although temporary they could quite happily sit there for the next 20 years completely functional. The shipping container offices which have been painted bright yellow known as the ‘phase z. ro’ have actually already been moved and no doubt found a new home already. The design and build of shipping container architecture allows almost giant Lego ease of dismantling and reconstructing elsewhere. Interesting project whatever way you look at it mind.
What I like about this shipping container office is its functionality. Its not going to need a lot of maintenance and its kept everything based round what you need rather than what you want. The lining of the walls on the inside with what appears to be washable panels also makes good use of the unit as no doubt its been well insulated behind the panels.
I do wonder why companies aren’t utilizing these types of structures more especially for things like mobile sites or for using land that is currently not ready for construction but could be cleared and rented out with small office units for income while the construction project is on hold. Some of these large scale developments could be for years or even things like the U.K. where you get supermarkets buying up land in the hope of blocking its competition being able to build is another prime example of wasted land that could be using these types of buildings to help stimulate small business growth.
