Contain Yourself

Cool Architecture 2

Some time ago, my esteemed colleague CoutureSteez wrote about the cool transportable Puma store (pictured above), which can be taken apart and transported via ship from place to place and opened as a temporary store. After reading that post, I’ve researched the innovative architecture style, simply dubbed “Shipping Container Architecture.” And it has taken off in a major way.

While it may not be a living arrangement for everyone, it does affect the environment, being that storage containers are being recycled and put to good use (Light Bulb: Homelessness could possibly be reduced or even eliminated if this takes off..?!?). Additionally, each container costs around $1500-2000, relatively affordable, especially if one is seeking to create a home that’s totally his/hers. And finally, IT’S TRANSPORTABLE! Imagine having the luxury of  being a nomad, or vacationing wherever, while not sacrificing your home comforts.

Though that will be some time away, expect to see me in a “humble” abode of this nature. It’s eco-friendly, it’s unique, and it’s hot, hot, HOT!

Stay Classick!

    Hey Joe

    You should check these Berlin guys out. They have an office in Seoul, where they set up an event space made totally from containers.
