Although the shipping container gives a rustic industrial look which draws people to the restaurant. The horizontal shipping container makes a bold statement and a talking point as well as an interesting attraction as visitors can view the unit from inside. For more information on the restaurant please feel free to visit their site.
Looks like China is getting in on the Shipping Container buildings although not the first project I have come across, although most are modular buildings being sold for export prefabricated and fitted in China. The seafood restaurant in Tianjin, China is a different setup though as its using recycled containers and part of the Beitang Container Project. Not a lot of information on Beitang can be found online although does seem to be some major fish food production going on in the region. The smart thing with the container design though is the utilization of roof spaces for seating as it obviously makes a lot of sense to put the diners in the open air and create a secondary seating area.
Wish I could find more information on this project but there doesn’t seem to be much on the internet and I can see this is likely to be a fairly large scale project with more interesting photos from inside etc but can’t locate them. If your in the region or have photos please send them over as I would love to share them on this article with everyone. Also if you have more information on the Beitang Container Project and if its an ongoing project or if they have multiple sites etc would also be interested to know more.
