ID: People…

We were given a briefing for our new project which is to create a co-working office space in shipping containers.

We were suggested places to look at while in London on our trip and places around Sheffield.

*Think outside the box*

Maybe consider putting plants into the space in creative ways.

Materials to look into:

  • Polycarbonate
  • Plastics
  • Mdf
  • PEG board
  • Acoustic panelling
  • Steel
  • Copper
  • Corrugated steel
  • Aluminium
  • Glass (mirrored & coloured)
  • Vinyl
  • Tiles
  • Ls
  • Fabric
  • Cardboard

Shipping Containers: pros and cons of them, how can shipping containers be used? retail, leisure or office

Things to consider:

  • You’re to use 1-2 shipping containers minimum
  • Have space for at least three users
  • Play with flexibility-make good use of the space
  • maximise every square meter
  • Use 1 or 2 materials only

Your co-working (shared working environment) space needs:

  • Breakout space-chill area
  • Desk space- change it up a bit
  • Meeting area
  • Storage

While on the London trip things to look out for:

  • Materials
  • Lighting
  • Technology
  • Furniture
  • Graphics

plus things like flooring, ceiling, walls, signage etc to take photos of as well
