Shipping containers are combined with modern design to create edgy structures
Implications - Renovating shipping containers to be used as living quarters or retail space is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. Most commonly seen used as personal residences, they have also been used by businesses to set up stores. In France, they were used as make-shift hallways as a solution for loitering delinquents. Initially thought to be an affordable low-income housing alternative, recycled shipping containers have now been recognized for their architectural aesthetics and embraced by lovers of contemporary design. They are a reflection of environmental awareness and an appreciation for novelty.
