In the true spirit of innovation and assisting young companies in developing their business model, Dutch architect Julius Taminiau partnered with Carl Turner Architects in the design of efficient, low-maintenance and budget-friendly start-up hubs. The so-called "village" is comprised out of upcycled shipping containers — a popular movement within the realm of fast-paced and eco-friendly architecture, and it is situated in Amsterdam's Science Park.

Due to the modularity of the shipping containers as a resource, they are "portable, stackable and widely available," the Shipping Container Village is the perfect format for startup hubs, as it matches the flexibility of entrepreneurship.

In addition, the closely knit startup hubs foster a sense of community among the young businesses that can provide inspiration and a wonderful drive for collaboration.
