Adaptive Design: Shipping Container Turned into a Stylish Sales Gallery

You might have already heard about shipping container homes, but this inventive creation by B.AP in Cordoba, Argentina houses a sales gallery for a budding recreational and residential development. The idea is fresh, imaginative and makes perfect use of available resources even while cutting back on costs. Instead of building an entirely new office building, the shipping containers sales spaces offers a budget alternative that can easily find future use. It also is a great way to attract potential customers who will instantly notice the offbeat vibe!

Crafted for estancia el terrón, the form of the shipping container sales unit is unpretentious and ergonomic. Its dark exterior is broken up by the use of large floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding glass doors that open it up to the landscape. White sheer curtains allow those inside to regulate natural light even as track lighting takes over after sunset. The temporary unit is placed under two giant trees that offer ample shade even as it overlooks the vast area where the future housing structures along with a golf course and country club will take shape.

  • Its a great idea of using the shipping container to create an office instead of wasting money on building a new office. Nice use of the surrounding especially the trees to get shade. It is really an attractive design.
