The Music Box
Shipping container architecture can be used for many different applications, from apartments to studios, classrooms, offices, and even music recording studios!
LOT-EK Concept Tower
Also by LOT-EK is this fantastic concept for a tower at 87 Lafayette Street in New York City. The idea is for a 19-story artists’ loft building, built by stacking containers, with staircases at the north and south ends. The roof of the slanted tower would sport solar panels. The building in front of the bold new design is an historic New York City firehouse, perhaps serving as a visual tie to the past.
Urban Space Management
In addition to showpiece developments like Container City, the modular design concept can work well in places where mobility, efficiency and low-cost are key requirements. Container structures can be moved from site to site, and their compact design saves space and keeps things simple and tidy.
