This shipping container conversion, is one of the most the most creative uses of the metal containers I have seen to date. The 20 foot long shipping container has been transformed into a door-less, hangout that is the perfect alternative to camping for a bunch of kids.

The concept was dreamed up by the Jikerzhicheng design firm, who are based in Beijing. The beauty of the space, is that the door-less design encourages people to relax on the decking and utilize the outdoor space. If you need to move the building, simply pop it on the back of a truck and park it wherever you fancy.

In a time where people are making a conscientious effort to have retreats and breaks away from the hectic modern world, inexpensive and user-friendly designs such as this provide a real solution for getting back to nature.
