The Sugoroku Office by Daiken-Met Architects is an innovative and modern space located in Gifu, Japan. The building was designed so that it could be easily taken apart for movement, making it a mobile space. Daiken-Met Architects is a Japanese practice and the Sugoroku Office is their personal studio. The three-story framework supports stacked shipping containers, which form work areas and even potentially living spaces on the penthouse floor.

The Sugoroku Office by Daiken-Met Architects was built on a short-term contract after they proposed the temporary structure, which doesn't need construction below street level. The Sugoroku Office is an example of shipping container architecture, a cost-effective and strong alternative to conventional buildings that is easily transported and widely available.
